Introducing the ‘Be Strong’ Curriculum

Posted on Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

Peace Over Violence is launching our Be Strong Curriculum!

Be Strong is an asset-based health promotion and violence prevention curriculum empowering young women ages 13-19. The curriculum builds on concepts of womanhood, respect, and positive relationships as a strategy for health promotion and violence prevention.

Be Strong has been piloted and implemented in eight Los Angeles Unified School District schools during the 2008-9 school year. It is aligned with California Department of Education Academic Curriculum Standards and the 40 Developmental Assets for Adolescents (ages 12-18) identified by Search Institute. Also, the curriculum is evidence-informed by independent data analysis conducted by Harder+Co.

The curriculum is currently available at POV's shop.

Also available are POV facilitator trainings for organizations. Please contact trina@peaceoverviolence.org for more information.
