First Call

Program Summary: First Call Safe & Healthy Schools is a prevention intervention program serving students attending selected schools in Kansas City Missouri Public Schools (KCPS), Lee’s Summit Public Schools (LSPS) and University Academy—in neighborhoods where illicit drug and crime rates are high. The Safe & Healthy Schools program goal is to create a safe and healthy environment for students.

Safe & Healthy Schools will be administered at the elementary, middle, junior high and high school levels. The program focuses on the deployment of LifeSkills Training (Botvin 1995), an evidence-based intervention that offers three, age-specific curricula for elementary, junior high and high school age students, designed to prevent underage drug and alcohol abuse, adolescent tobacco use, violence and other risk behaviors.
