What is Comprehensive Prevention Programs?
Comprehensive Prevention Programming is designed to decrease risk and lay an educational foundation that discourages specific dangerous or maladaptive behaviors before they occur. With knowledge of health and/or psychological risks of these issues, we equip scholars to make more empowered choices in their lives.
All grades: Prevention Programs
Red Ribbon Week: Uplift Education participates in the national Red Ribbon Week campaign, held each year from October 23-31. Each campus participates in a variety of age-appropriate activities to encourage scholars to avoid substance use and engage in healthy behaviors.

Human Trafficking Prevention: According to Texas Education Agency, human trafficking is the recruitment, harboring, transporting, or procurement of a person for labor or services for the purpose of involuntary servitude, slavery, or forced commercial sex acts. While human trafficking is a global problem, it is also a Texas problem. To spotlight this prevalent issue, Uplift education provides age-appropriate content to scholars to bring awareness.
