Too Good for Drugs and Violence K-12 and Too Good for Drugs and Violence After School Program are research based drug and violence prevention programs developed by the Mendez Foundation.
About the Programs
Too Good for Drugs and Violence K-12 has a separate, developmentally appropriate curriculum developed for each grade level, and includes lesson plans that can be integrated into diverse subjects (math, science, english). Outcomes from research included significant changes in attitudes towards drugs and violence, perceived peer norms, peer disapproval of substance use, emotional competence, social and resistance skiills, goals and decision making, and perceived harmful effects of substances. The program includes Asset Building strategies and results in significant increases in factors that protect students from engaging in risky behaviors.
Too Good for Drugs and Violence After School Program is an extension of the K-12 Program. The program provides a variety of developmentally appropriate activities that reinforce prevention concepts, such as decision making and conflict resolution. The activities are designed for 5-13 year olds.
