The book targets teen girls 13–19 years old; however, there is plenty of relevant information for teen boys as well. It emphasizes getting an education, building relationships, and not rushing into teen parenthood. Readers will find out what life has in store for the teen mom.
The book also includes information for group facilitators on how to conduct life-skills groups with youth in their care. It provides valuable tips on how to make lessons engaging through role-play, brainstorming and group discussions.
This publication is ideal for organizations working with at-risk youth. Currently, the ARISE Sprouts series is being used in eight juvenile justice facilities in Florida alone: Palm Beach, Dade, Osceola, Polk, Orange and Hillsborough Regional Juvenile Detention Centers, Monticello New Life and Milton Girls Juvenile Residential Facility.
Since ARISE was established almost three decades ago, it has trained and certified over 5,000 group facilitators (instructors)
