Students Enrolled in HOPE Classes
As the HOPE Program continues to evolve and better meet the needs of the student population, a new abstinence education curriculum for high school level -- Choosing The Best Journey and Choosing the Best Soul Mate -- has been adopted. HOPE staff attended training on the new curriculum material in June 2011 at Gwinnett Metro Baptist Association in Lawrenceville, Georgia. The training was done by Choosing the Best trainer, Ruth Geetz. Choosing the Best Journey and Soul Mate are combined to provide a complete semester of abstinence education instruction and make the third high school level instructional option for HOPE.
Community Involvement and Public Relations
In an effort to bring more awareness to the HOPE Program, expand the scope of HOPE, spread the message of abstinence and the avoidance of risky behaviors, and to connect with parents and other community groups/organizations, the HOPE Program/staff has participated in the following:
Table display at Lights on After Hours at Greene County High School in October 2011. Brochures pertinent to abstinence and information on the HOPE Program were given out to parents and students.
Taught drug awareness classes at Boys & Girls Club during Red Ribbon Week observance (drug awareness week) in October 2011 to elementary and middle school students.
Distributed wristbands with anti drug slogans to students attending Greene County High School during Red Ribbon Week.
