Reality Check Project Introduction is an inspirational story exemplified by Charles’ personal testimony and transformational journey.
Peer Pressure and negative influences are everywhere for our youth. The objective of Reality Check Project is to have honest, open discussion about these issues and how to handle them.
Stress and Anger Management is central to our personal and professional relationships and often determines how we are perceived by others. Through scenarios, group discussion, and by providing evidence-based tools and resources Reality Check Project guides participants through recognition of their stressors and acknowledgement of escalated anger. Through the use of peer supports, mentorship, and guided reflection, Reality Check Project teaches participants how to cope
Decision Making We all make bad decisions. It often seems that good decisions are the hardest to make. Many youth do not understand the importance of the choices they make, or the power that they have over them. Within a participatory group discussion, led by participant examples, guided scenarios and planned activities, Reality Check Project promotes better decision making through education of consequences and by providing support and encouragement through positive consequences for good choices.
