Kids Connection

A healthy and promising future for every child!

Kids Connection provides a safe place for children to learn vital life skills that will show them how to make healthy choices, overcome adversity, and stay drug-free while gaining a greater understanding of themselves and others. Kids Connection, a ten-week curriculum, teaches the group process, helps kids learn the special qualities of each participant, identify feelings and how to express them in healthy ways, avoid confrontation, build self-confidence, set goals, make healthy life choices, maintain healthy friendships, and take care of themselves.

  • Second Week – A Celebration of Me
  • Third Week – Feelings
  • Fourth Week – Handling Anger
  • Fifth Week – Dreams & Goal Setting
  • Sixth Week – Make Healthy Choices
  • Seventh Week – Friends
  • Eight Week- Resisting Negative Peer Pressure
