This is a classroom based program that teaches a curriculum called “The Fourth R” (Relationships). The program is taught using a thematic approach to reduce risk behaviours including:
- Unsafe sexual behaviour
- Substance use
Many of these adolescent risk behaviours overlap because they occur in the context of relationships. The Fourth R program addresses these adolescent risk behaviours by focusing on relationship goals and challenges that influence their decision-making.
There are free training modules available for adults working with grades 7, 8 or 9.
Please note that this is a targeted support as opposed to a universal support.
