Too Good for Drugs & Violence-After School Activities (ages 5-13) is a dynamic program that includes activities adapted from our award-winning school-based programs, including Too Good for Drugs K-8 and Too Good for Violence K-8. Designed for recreation centers, community or after-school settings, these activities augment school-based prevention programs with fun and engaging opportunities to learn and practice prevention skills.
