Ever wonder if there's a better way to make tough decisions? Unfortunately, our schools struggle to find the time and materials to teach students the critical thinking and decision skills they need for success.

We're now offering YOU a chance to find out how DEF helps kids learn to make quality decisions and you'll also walk away with a toolkit for making your own decisions. 

We're holding training sessions this summer on how to empower high school students with quality decision skills through our StrongStart program. These sessions prepare facilitators to deliver a week-long summer camp experience to students starting 9th grade. As a member of the public, you can participate as a student and experience an introduction to DEF's content and curriculum.


Our goal is to broaden our reach and make relationships with potential advocates, volunteers, and financial donors. 

Session Dates and Locations:

June 13 - 15, 2018 in Richmond, CA

July 17 - 19, 2018 in Santa Maria, CA

August 1 - 3, 2018 in Redwood City, CA

*All classes are 9am - 4pm. It is not required you attend a session in its entirety.
