RIVER Project

Ÿ MISSION: Aspire exists to share the life changing message of healthy relationships by providing youth with the skills and encouragement needed to avoid risky behaviors & make healthy choices.

Ÿ CLASSROOM PROGRAM: Aspire’s classroom program, The RIVER (Reaching Intentional Victory Expecting Reality) Project, is risk-avoidance relationship education that encourages youth to be intentional about choosing health, despite the confusing reality of what it means to be a teen today. The RIVER Project strives to:

Ÿ Educate on topics such as Goals, Media Influence, The Teen Brain, Whole Body Health, Healthy Relationships, Violence Prevention, Boundaries and Hopes & Dreams.

Ÿ Equip parents & the community as they support youth to make decisions that protect them Physically, Intellectually, Emotionally, Socially & Financially.

Ÿ Encourage & empower youth by teaching toward the fulfilling goal of healthy relationships, rather than merely teaching away from the consequences of alcohol, drug use, sex too soon, violence and tobacco.
