Education and Presentations
Our certified program facilitators lead highly interactive and powerful programs in local elementary, middle, high school and universities. In addition, the We Expect Respect curriculum is a Texas Education Board and the Texas Council on Family Violence approved program which allows students to increase healthy relationships and communication and help decrease violence and unhealthy behaviors.
Our programs are taught by top facilitators in the violence prevention industry who know kids, teens and young adults and understand their world. In addition, our programs meet the required Texas Education standards, so your programming and curriculum schedule do not suffer by allowing us to bring a violence prevention program into your school. We are proud of the impact our programs have made in the lives of students and the safety of our community and schools.
