Healthy Relationship Program

The Healthy Relationship Program is designed to teach our youth specific tools they can use to build healthy relationships.

One of the most important aspects of the training is character development.

Character development is more than developing good behavior, but rather identifying and cultivating a set of skills that provide the framework to build and execute ethical behavior.

With this program, youth overcome relationship challenges with determination, patience and forgiveness.

Character

What is Character?

Character is the end result of habits, choices, behaviors and attitudes that individual’s make. It includes an individual’s desire to do one’s best and concern for others’ well being.

The skills they learn will help them maintain healthy relationships by developing their interpersonal and emotional abilities.

How to Build Character

Daily life is a great place to build character, however we must be careful about letting our character develop by chance. That places far too much control in the hands of our environment and the people around us.

The goal is to help individuals take responsibility for their personal growth. To take what is being taught in a positive healthy way and apply it in their everyday lives. Utilizing these tools will not only help in their home life, but in their communities as well. Building on their character will only help our youth realize the importance of healthy relationships.
