Communities That Care is holding our evidence based program Guiding Good Choices.  It is designed to prevent substance use and is targeted to parents of the middle school grades.

As part of our memorandum of understanding with North Summit School District, NSSD has committed to promoting Guiding Good Choices to the parents of middle schoolers.  We would greatly appreciate you distributing the information in this link to the parents who will benefit from this program.  It is free and will be held online.  Classes begin March 3.

Empower your child to meet the challenges of adolescence.

Guiding Good Choices is a 5 session parenting program designed to empower you and your family to meet the challenges children face in adolescence.  This program is for parents of kids ages 9-14.

Classes are held on the following dates:

Thursdays March 3-March 31

6:30-8:00 pm 

Parents will learn how to set clear boundaries with their child while maintaining positive communication and connection.

Classes will be held for in 5 sessions.  Kids will join the class during week 3 to learn refusal skills to resist peer pressure and maintain their friendships.

Guiding Good Choices is an evidence-based program, proven to reduce substance use and depression in youth.
