LST Helps Kids Make the Right Decisions

As reported by:

Thanks to the Botvin LifeSkills Training program, which is currently taking place at all five Comal ISD middle schools in Texas, students are developing the necessary skills to resist the peer pressure to smoke, drink and use drugs.

Sixth-grade students meet for 18 weeks, seventh graders 12 weeks and eighth graders for seven weeks during the school year.

“I have had more than one student come up and tell me how they used the decision-making skills they learned in the LifeSkills Trainingto make a good choice,” said Church Hill Middle School LST Trainer Rosie Rodriguez. “That lets me know we’re getting through to them and as a teacher, that always makes me feel good.”
