Teens in Action is a high-energy, video-based program for ages 11-16. Developed over a period of five years and revamped in 2012, the program teaches important life skills while helping teens understand the dangers of risky behavior, such as alcohol and drug abuse.

Addresses issues important to today’s teens

Teens may act like they know it all, but they are full of questions and are eager to learn how to succeed in the adult world. Teens in Action is a fun way to help them understand changes in their bodies and brains, communicate in a mature way with adults and others, develop skills for resisting negative peer pressure, and learn techniques for peaceful conflict resolution.
