How can personality-targeted workshops help your child?

Adolescence is a time of rapid growth both mentally and physically. Your child is transitioning toward adulthood and becoming more independent. PreVenture workshops will provide your teen with the opportunity to get to know themselves better while also equipping them with the skills to make safer, healthier choices.

Testimonial

"I was truly amazed to see the shift in my child's attitude following the workshops. I wish I had the opportunity to take the workshops when I was a teenager."
- Parent

Dr. Patricia Conrod
Developer of the PreVenture Program

"A key focus of my research is personality, building resilience and early intervention. Every child deserves the opportunity to set long term goals and feel they can realize their dreams. The PreVenture Program was created with this in mind."

What is the Process?

Your child will be given a short survey to identify which workshop might be most suitable for them. Invitations will be issued to eligible teens. All information will be kept strictly confidential.

There are a limited number of spots available in each workshop. If your child is selected, they will be invited to participate in 2 90-minute workshops. The workshops will be run by a trained facilitator(s) and take place approximately 1 week apart. Your child will receive a student workbook they can take away afterwards.

Frequently Asked Questions

My child was not selected for the program. Will they miss out on the benefits of this program?

In order to ensure a more intimate atmosphere of acceptance and non-judgement, there are a limited number of spots available in the workshops. The good news is research has shown PreVenture to have a herd effect. Students who do not attend the program but go to a school in which the program takes place receive the same protective benefits.

Is my child required to participate in the program?

No. Participation in the program is completely voluntary.

Will I be required to pay for this program?

There is no cost to you as this program is provided via an investment in prevention made by your child’s school or a local community partner.

Is there research supporting the effectiveness of this program?  

Yes! Multiple randomized controlled trials on PreVenture have shown the effectiveness of the program. PreVenture has been recognized as an evidence-based program by leading authorities such as the US Surgeon General, UNESCO, UNODC and the World Health Organization (WHO).

I am interested in PreVenture, but it is not currently offered at my child’s school. How can I encourage my child’s school to begin offering this program?
