Description

All Stars™ is a school- or community-based program designed to delay the onset of or prevent high-risk behaviors in middle school-age adolescents, 11 to 14 years old. It affects youth substance use, violence, and premature sexual activity by fostering development of positive personal characteristics. A highly interactive program, All Stars involves 9 to 13 lessons during its first year and 7 to 8 booster lessons in its second year.
All Stars is based on strong research that has identified the critical factors that lead young people to begin experimenting with substances and participating in other high-risk behaviors. The program is designed to reinforce positive qualities typical of youth at this age; it works to strengthen five specific qualities vital to achieving preventive effects:
• Developing positive ideals and future aspirations
• Establishing positive norms
• Building strong personal commitments
• Promoting bonding with school and community organizations
• Promoting positive parental attentiveness
