Footprints For Life teaches early prevention skills to second graders

The Center for Prevention has brought the Footprints for Life program back to Charles Olbon School this year. The Woodland Park Municipal Alliance Against Alcoholism and Drug Abuse has funded the program’s facilitation to all second grade classes.

The six-week early prevention program teaches important life skills to the  students through the use of puppets and stories that feature real life situations experienced by a children’s soccer team.

The program offers opportunities for students to practice the skills they have learned in a fun and non-threatening way.

The lessons address decision-making practice, interpersonal skills, peer pressure, and peaceful conflict resolution.

Parents and guardians can visit the program website at www.footprintsforlife.org/kids to learn more about the characters and lessons.
