S.M.A.R.T. Moves
The S.M.A.R.T. Moves (Skills Mastery and Resistance Training) prevention/education program addresses social issues in our society utilizing a team approach.  More than simply emphasizing a "Say No" message, the program teaches young people ages 6 to 15 how to say no by involving them in discussion and role-playing, practicing resistance and refusal skills, developing assertiveness, strengthening decision-making skills and analyzing media and peer influence.  The ultimate goal: to promote abstinence from substance abuse through the practice of responsible behavior.

S.M.A.R.T. Girls
An outgrowth of the popular and effective S.M.A.R.T. Moves program, S.M.A.R.T. Girls is a health, fitness, prevention/education and self-esteem enhancement program for girls ages 8 to 17.  The program is designed to encourage healthy attitudes and lifestyles that will enable early adolescent girls to develop to their full potential.  Sponsored by Tupperware Brands Corporation.
