The SMART Moves (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) prevention/education program addresses problems such as drug and alcohol use and premature sexual activity.
More than simply emphasizing a "Say No" message, the program teaches young people how to say no by involving them in discussion and role-playing, practicing resistance and refusal skills, developing assertiveness, strengthening decision-making skills and analyzing media and peer influence. The ultimate goal: to promote abstinence from substance abuse and adolescent sexual involvement through the practice of responsible behavior.
SMART Girls is a health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program just for girls. The program is designed to encourage healthy attitudes and lifestyles that will enable early adolescent girls to develop to their full potential.
