Program Summary: 
The Guadalupe Centers is expanding its Substance Abuse Prevention Life Skills Program, directed to youth who reside primarily in Kansas City's Westside and Northeast neighborhoods. The Life Skills Program utilizes Lions Quest Skills for Adolescence, an active learning, evidence-based social and emotional learning program addressing the physical, emotional and social consequences of alcohol and other substance use. 

This curriculum provides vital life skills that support youth through the challenges of their adolescent years, including positively managing emotions and improving peer and family relationships. 

Guadalupe Centers' SA Prevention Specialist facilitates the students' progress through a series of 24 interactive and multimedia lessons that address risk and protective factors and guide individuals through development of practical social, personal and intellectual skills they can draw upon to make positive choices in the face of challenges. 

Youth completing the program should demonstrate strengthened self-esteem, improved behaviors and deepened community connections, while feeling confident they have the knowledge and skills to make healthy life choices.
