Risk, a drama and improvisation experience for teens.
Drug Prevention begins with information. But without practice and role playing, information is not likely to overcome cultural standards, certain values, and peer pressure. Risk lets kids find and practice resistance skills that work with their own unique peer groups, schools and home life. Teens learn to think on their feet and to improvise statements based on their values. They learn to express in body language and tone their true feelings and to defend themselves against high risk situations. We take the Risk, so you don’t have to, our motto!
Classes are offered in schools and other settings in partnership with Livingston Arts. No acting or previous experience needed. This is a mutual support group by professional acting coaches.
No experience with risky situations is required.
Risk incorporates lessons from the well known Cornell prevention model, Life Skills, by Dr, Gilbert Botvin.
