Creating a Safe Space
- Providing a forum where all participants feel safe, respected, and heard is the heart of our method.
- Our Educators facilitate a dialogue and talk “with” rather than “at” teens and parents.
- We build a knowledge base, help participants connect the dots, and emphasize how the information can be applied in the real world.
- Our job is to help teens and parents think through both sides of issues and weigh costs and benefits. Their job is to make decisions for themselves in accordance with their own beliefs and values.
