A character-based approach to preventing high-risk behaviors in youth. Sessions are facilitated by a trained prevention specialist. The program can be presented in either a school classroom or community setting. ALL STARS serves middle school-aged adolescents eleven to fourteen years old.
How it works
ALL STARS prevents substance use (alcohol, tobacco, marijuana, and inhalents), fighting, and delinquency. However, the program does more than prevent negative behaviors. The program also enhances positive characteristics we all want young people to develop. For example it promotes:
- Idealism and a belief in the future
- Commitment to a positive lifestyle
- Wholesome standards
- A sense of belonging
- Positive relations with parents and other adults
All STARS is Fun and Engaging!
ALL STARS is a highly interactive program that promotes parent/youth discussion with take home assignments to be worked on together. Students are encouraged to express their opinions. The program includes the following:
- Small group activities
- Activities in which students work together in pairs
- Art Activities
- Concludes with a celebration
The U.S. Department of Education and the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention has recognized All STARS as a "Best Practice" and "Model" program.
The All STARS program addresses many of the National Health Education Standards that schools are required to include in their health curriculum.
