Life Skills Class for Students
FREE and back by popular demand. HC DrugFree is providing a highly interactive skills-based program designed to promote positive health and personal development for youth in grades 6-9. (For slightly younger or older students, register and we will consider each request.) We encourage siblings and friends to take classes together. This program uses developmentally appropriate, collaborative learning strategies to help students achieve competency in the skills shown to help students resist substance use (tobacco, alcohol and other drugs), violence, and other high-risk behaviors. Taught by dedicated adults and older students sharing situations your student may face in high school, college, and beyond. The next session will be held this summer, Monday through Thursday July 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, 28 from 10:00 to 11:30 a.m. via Zoom.
