Street Smart is an engaging, highly interactive group program for young people between the ages of 14 and 24. Through guided conversations and role-playing exercises, participants learn how to make healthier, more informed decisions - particularly when it comes to sexual behavior and the use of substances. All sessions provide instruction and practice in using social skills to improve decision making in high-risk situations, practice safer behaviors, and avoid things like unintended pregnancy and HIV infection.
This program is open to youth ages 14-24, specifically those who are at high risk or currently engaging in high-risk behaviors.
All participants receive transit tokens and a hot meal at each session, plus a $10 gift card at the completion of the 11-week workshop cycle.
Workshops take place at our Washington West location (1201 Locust Street) and can be presented at community based organizations and recreational centers by request.
