Prevention Specialist

 

As Greenville Elementary’s Prevention Specialist, I offer a program through DISC Village, Inc. designed to increase your child’s knowledge about drug abuse prevention as well as building character through a program called, "The New Horizons". The New Horizons Program offers safe and supportive environment for students to discover and strengthen their abilities to make positive choices in life. The program participants will meet for a 16-session curriculum, once or twice a week.

 

As your Prevention Specialist , I will ensure that your child, learn about positive decision-making skills, coping skills, communication skills, healthy self esteem, anger management techniques, healthy vs. unhealthy relationships, the dangers of alcohol, tobacco and other drugs as well as personal responsibility of their behaviors and choices.

 

In addition, The New Horizons Program helps students make constructive choices so they may increase positive and responsible behavior both at school and in the community.
