Excited to share the news!
The Botvin Lifeskills Training Program will be featured on the daily hour-long lifestyle program Mass Appeal on WWLP this Wednesday 1/11 between 11am-12pm.
Tune in to watch Kat Allen from the Communities that Care Coalition, a Partnership for Youth Program of the Franklin Regional Council of Governments, and Kate Blair from the Frontier Regional School in Deerfield as they discuss the successes of implementing Lifeskills Training to help reduce teen drug use in their community.
Studies show that students who go through this program are much less likely to engage in drugs and other forms of dangerous behaviors later in life. Tobacco use was also shown to be reduced by 87% and alcohol use by 60%.
The LifeSkills Training program involves a set curriculum with interactions and role-plays between teachers and students. The teachers have been using the curriculum for more than a year now, and are seeing the results.
