If your question is not answered below, email us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
How much do your services cost?
Absolutely, always, free!
How long are the programs?
Each program has its own specific requirements; your facilitator and chosen activities available are individualized for your group and we work around your schedule. We come to your site once or twice a week. Each program is either 5, 6, 10 or 12 sessions can be 15 to 30 to 45 minutes long. Get in touch with us and we will see what works best for your group!
Are there age requirements for the programs?
Faith Connection is for developmental ages 4-15.
Youth Connection is for developmental ages 10-17.
Positive Action has grade specific curricula.
What does a session look like?
Each session starts off with an introduction to the session, a group discussion followed by an activity and a debrief. We always come in pairs and with awesome incentives for participation!
"But do my students really need this information?"
Yes. The more students understand themselves, the higher likelihood they are going to want to succeed in school. Toxic stress gets in the way of learning. When a teacher doesn't understand the student and the student doesn't understand themselves, little learning takes place.
If your schedule allows, let's enrich lives together!
What sites do you go to other than school settings?
A few examples of other sites our trained facilitators have gone out to are treatment centers, correctional facilities, social/support/service groups, activity centers.
What other services do you provide?
Some other youth services we do exceptionally well are: summer camps for youth, back-to-school-bashes for youth, Halloween and Christmas parties for families. We have a mini library, youth clothes closet, shoe closet and can provide hygiene items. We also connect our youth with art classes, music classes, free tutoring and the chance to participate in science experiments.We also promote supplemental information by bringing in many amazing local guest speakers/presenters for a variety of topics for all ages. We provide referrals for services we do not offer for all ages. Food Vouchers available upon request. We also usually will attempt to do whatever it takes to fill a community need, for instance, the CRF Project!
Do you have services for adults?
Yes. In addition to Prevention Education for youth, Hub City Outreach Center can provide presentations to youth and also adults over a variety of topics from ATOD (Alcohol, Tobacco, and Other Drugs), synthetic drugs, stress management, mental health, adolescent brain development, overdose prevention, and much more. We have put together an abundance of resources available online and can be given out upon request.
In relation to Covid-19 and other illnesses, how do your Prevention Specialists keep themselves healthy and prevent transmission from site-to-site?
Since each site is different, our staff are mindful to what is necessary and incorporate a few tactics for extra protection. Our staff self-administer Wellness checks prior to arriving on site. They are given masks, gloves and hand sanitizer to use as needed. These items allow our staff to protect themselves. Our staff have made adjustments to activities to allow for safer interactions. Some of our sites were flexible and we moved from a small room to a large gym. We are able to provide some video content and activity suggestions for Educators. Our staff and the site representatives have a obligation to keep each other and all parties safe.
