SMART MOVES (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) is a 7 week prevention/education program that addresses current problems such as drug and alcohol use and premature sexual activity.
The Program uses a team approach involving Club Staff, peer leaders, parents and community representatives. more than simply emphasizing a “Say No” message, the program teaches our Club Members (ages 6-15) 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.
In addition to the 7 week classes that are held as part of our Programs, this class is also taught throughout District 7 schools to all sixth graders. To learn more about this program, please contact your local Club.
