The Mission of the S.T.A.A.R. program is to raise awareness about the consequences children and teens may encounter when making decisions to engage in reckless behavior. We intend to help them to build self-respect, develop personal accountability, and acquire responsible attitudes toward the choices they make.
Through media attention, guest speakers, Internet awareness, school-wide assemblies, and school clubs, we intend to offer resources for youth, parents, and adult advisors. The S.T.A.A.R. program will provide them with tools to identify reckless behavior and avoid dangerous situations, while providing skills to implement responsible decision-making.
