Youth Connection – All Grade Levels

Do you have children or adolescents who are at risk of becoming involved with drugs or alcohol? Is your school district looking for a Prevention program that can be adapted to fit any age group and any grade? Managed Care Center and the Texas Health and Human Services Commission have an answer that is completely funded through the State of Texas.

Youth Connection was designed for students at any grade level so they may gain awareness of the dangers of alcohol and drug use while building skills for living happier, healthier lives.

Some of the Youth Connection session titles include:

  • Getting to Know You
  • A Celebration of Me
  • Feelings
  • Handling Anger
  • Dreams and Goal Setting
  • Making Healthy Choices
  • Friends
  • Resisting Negative Peer Pressure
  • Putting It All Together
  • Commitment and Celebration

If you believe Youth Connection is right for your students, call us today at 806.780.8300 to schedule an appointment with one of our Youth Connection Program Coordinators. We will be happy to work with you to build the best possible program at no cost to your school district, city, or county.

It seems that so often in today’s modern society that our children have to stuff their feelings down. The one section that impressed me the most in the Youth Connection program were the ones on Feelings and Anger. These validated what my students experience and said, “It’s okay to have feelings. It’s okay to express feelings. Just keep it appropriate.” This message made an impact.

The Youth Connection instructor made this course fun and gave me a lot to think about – important things that I can use now and in the future.
