All Stars does more than prevent risky behaviors. All Stars programs are designed to change lives by helping young people build bright futures.
All Stars programs reach youth during the years of greatest vulnerability to experimenting with substances, fighting, bullying, and initiating sexual activity.During adolescence, young people grow and mature. They change from being concrete thinkers to becoming abstract thinkers.
The transition through adolescence increases social awareness, a desire to fit in, to gain personal identity and social status.All Stars uses our understanding of what adolescents experience and how these experiences change lives. All Stars programs match the social and cognitive development of students.
Our approach is effective because it deals with the root causes of behavior. All Stars targets things that matter using strategies that engage and inspire students.
Our All Stars program target our Renfroe Middle schoolers here in Decatur. All Stars is student-centered and encourages a high level of student engagement and hands-on learning.
The program is process-based (not informational-based) allowing every group of students
to make it about them and for them.
