This powerful, one-of-a-kind course focuses on the whole family and is a major force for changing our nation.

Strengthening Families is a special schools programme, it is designed to reduce environmental risk factors and to boost personal resilience to drug use in high-risk youth. Research has shown that the programme also lowers the chances of mental disorders, aggression, juvenile delinquency, school failure, teenage pregnancy, and HIV/AIDS in youth. The course also drops rates of child abuse and neglect, by increasing parent’s love and empathy for their children. The course breaks the family into three groups for skills training: parents, children and family.
