Prevention Education Program

We believe in the power of education. That’s why we invest so much in our Prevention Education Program.

What We Provide

We visit classrooms (preschool – 12th grade) throughout San Miguel County and the West End of Montrose County, including Telluride, Norwood, Naturita, Nucla, and Paradox, teaching children and teens a wide range of important life skills to prevent violence and abuse. We currently work with 1,487 students in our region.

We use an evidence-based, resiliency curriculum focusing on helping youth develop the skills and tools to be successful. The topics we explore include healthy communication, healthy relationships, emotion regulation, identity and diversity, and tolerance. We strive to make our lessons interactive and engaging to connect with youth on a personal level. We are passionate about continuing to grow the program and strengthen our relationships with the schools we serve. Together through our joint efforts, we can support the next generation in nonviolence.
