Level 1

Grades 8-12

The Level 1 program introduces our highly acclaimed violence prevention assertiveness model. The topics covered delve into many social and emotional survival issues youth are facing in their day-to-day lives. Teens can experience tremendous pressure and anxiety both online and face-to-face. They struggle with the need to fit in, body image issues and gender stereotypes and more. Safeteen offers them strategies to navigate these issues skillfully and effectively. By utilizing experiential exercises, role-plays and dialogue participants will learn to access their inner-wisdom, hone their critical thinking in order to stand up and speak up for what they believe in without violence.
