Sussex County Health Coalition brings BOTVIN to Seaford Middle School with a little help from our FFA friends at Seaford High School and the University of Delaware!
The evidence-based Botvin curriculum is a life-skills program that focuses on teaching Middle Schoolers to set goals, be strong against peer pressure and to communicate with other teens when it comes to drugs and alcohol. Our unique program trained eleven youth ambassadors from Seaford High School, specifically, from the Future Farmers of America student group, on the Botvin program.
These students will in turn become Botvin youth trainers to Seaford Middle School students under the direction and supervision of the University of Delaware 4H Botvin certified trainer’s program. We loved meeting and spending time with the Seaford High School students and were most impressed with their dedication, sincerity and maturity. As a group, they had the opportunity to spend some personal time with Chris Herren after he spoke at their high school. Now, they become Botvin youth trainers for Seaford Middle School students as well as "purple ambassadors” for their high school.
Go move those mountains FFA! We are so proud of you!
