MAKING PROUD CHOICES

A WORKSHOP SERIES FOR Grades 6-8

An important component of Making Proud Choices is the strong emphasis on family and community. The curriculum teaches participants to make responsible decisions regarding their behavior, respect themselves and others, and appreciate the importance of developing a positive image. The role of pride is making a difference in making responsible decisions. The curriculum addresses issues of self-esteem, self-respect and pride by emphasizing that it can make you feel proud and responsible to make sexually healthy decisions. The adolescents’ sense of pride, self-confidence, and self-respect is encouraged and reinforced during the role-plays and other skill-building activities.
