A Comprehensive Wellness Education Initiative for Schools, Parents and the Community

*Register for a Program*

With our help, your school will be able to register for a program from our selections below and each program is unique to fit the needs of your school.

Our program agenda consists of a curriculum type approach so that we can provide each school with a well-rounded program that does not cover one issue but completes the circle by providing students with the skill and knowledge they need to make healthy choices. We believe the best approach is to create a team strategy.

Programming can range from one hour classroom workshops to all day events.
