Improve the lives of young people by empowering them with effective Decision Skills.
DEF can provide your 9th Graders with Steps to Success today.
Born Ready: A Mixed Legacy
Help us and GoGrady Media create a new film and
new curriculum for helping youth understand the importance of decision making and resilience.
Making effective decisions has never been more important. In the time of Covid-19, when hanging out with friends could ultimately result in death, or a game of pick-up basketball could lead to disability, teenagers and young adults need effective decision-making skills.
The film is about one basketball player's decision that cost his life and impacted the lives of thousands for many years. Len Bias, #34 on the University of Maryland, is remembered for being one of the best and most beloved college basketball players of all time, as well as for the mixed legacy resulting from one bad decision.
Ask us about our self-paced, configurable curriculum
that you can implement using your school's online LMS.
Decisions Change Lives
Every day, teens face challenging decisions that can have significant impacts on their lives and the world around them. In a life of choices, developing the skills to think through decisions is essential.
And yet, our schools struggle to find the time and materials to teach students the critical thinking and decision skills they need for success. DEF focuses on teaching youth 21st century skills using the Decision Quality framework.
DEF wants to equip the teens in communities everywhere with the decision tools to create a great future for themselves and others. For instance, we are recruiting partner schools for StrongStart, a week-long orientation program for incoming high school 9th graders. Find more possibilities to learn from us under What We Do.
