Ready to grow your life skills in a fun after school club at the Rec. Department?

Botvin LifeSkills Training (LST) is a research-based substance abuse and violence prevention program for kids ages 12-14 that teaches important coping skills in a fun, engaging, and developmentally-appropriate way. This training program not only prevents tobacco, alcohol, and drug abuse in the vast majority of participants, but also teaches kids the knowledge and skills necessary to:

• Increase self-esteem
• Increase ability to make decisions and solve problems
• Communicate effectively and avoid misunderstandings
• Manage anxiety
• Make new friends
• Say “no” to unfair requests and peer pressure to use drugs
• Resist advertising pressures to use drugs

The program here at the Peterborough Recreation Department will be like an after school club! The kids will take a bus to Adams Park (or be dropped off) where they will meet their club advisor, a certified trainer of the Life Skills program through the organization Reality Check. Kids will have the opportunity to take a break from school and play on the playground or on our fields. They'll enjoy a snack provided by us before going inside the Meeting Room for the hour-long session.
