Providing Educational substance abuse prevention training
Global Youth Prevention (GYP) believes in creating an empowered community- whose ultimate goal is to create a safe "environment" for students to ask questions without judgment and receive real feedback and answers. If students don't hear it from a trusted resource, they will learn it from media and friends. We believe prevention in not just a one-time event, but and ongoing experience. By getting the community involved, together we can create healthy and powerful adults.
What makes our program unique- is Global Youth Program in not a "scare" based program, but an empowered based program- so that teenagers have the opportunity to discover and redesign the limiting beliefs they have about themselves and others. It’s these self-imposed limitations that could keep them from fully achieving their maximum capabilities. This redesign allows them to pursue their dreams and goals with new freedom and passion. In the GYP Training the participants also begin to create a solid foundation of powerful tools that they will be able to take with them and use for the rest of their lives. The Three or Four-Day Program are based on the latest research and trends. "Addiction was rarely discussed when Diana was growing up, and when it was, the messages and scare tactics were often misleading and confusing," Diana recounts. "We've come a long way in understanding what young people need in order to keep making healthy choices."
By equipping students with information and skills they can use, GYP offers lessons to last a lifetime.
