YouthAlive Leaders Portal

A purpose-driven life by modeling an evidence-based Positive Peer Prevention Program.

Step #1: Positive

Youth Alive focuses on positive alternatives in Christ, resulting in positive interpersonal relationships with one another. Participants treat one another with Respect, Dignity, and Honor, valuing each person with no racism, no prejudice, no put-downs.

Step #2: Peer

In this program youth and adults are reaching out to other youth, children, and adults to encourage them to make healthy choices free from addictions. The connectedness among youth and with adults provides a natural sense of satisfaction.

Step #3: Prevention

Youth Alive focuses on the theme “MY CHOICE–FULLY ALIVE” - this encourages commitment to healthy living for all the participants, including those who may have already casually experimented with drugs or other at-risk behaviors.

Step #4: Program

The program involves various activities and events focusing on the growth and discipling of youth. It is intergenerational. That is, it includes not only youth, but the participation of qualified adult presenters and facilitators.
