Course Description

This three day workshop is for individuals who work with youth in community based settings. The Alive & Free Prescription ™ works to change beliefs, attitudes, values and actions that promote violence. By adopting the Alive & Free Prescription ™ and rolling out workshops to local service providers and training them to use the curriculum, San Francisco is moving in a direction where youth will hear the same message wherever they are served in the city and be held to the same behavior expectations across all youth serving agencies. This program has been well received by various community-based organizations nationwide.
