Dare To Be You Program. Leaders' Manual. 2nd Edition.
Miller-Heyl, Janet Lynne; Shores, Wanda, Ed.
This manual contains a complete set of program formats, activities, and references covered by the Dare to be You Training Program. The program, piloted in a rural Colorado County, is designed for use by parents, youth, teachers, church, and service organizations to help them deal with adolescents' problems and to assist youth in developing skills to help them through their teen years. A central concept of the workshops is to use the reinforcing process to increase children's resistance to adolescent problems and problem behaviors. The manual, organized into five sections, includes exercises designed to increase participants' self-esteem, communication skills, decision-making skills, leadership, acceptance of responsibility, and internal control. Section A of the manual outlines a series of workshops and activities for parents and other adult caregivers. Section B describes a similar series of workshops directed toward adolescents. Section C describes a variety of program and activities designed for a wide range of youth, including a dropout prevention program. Sections A through C each contain objectives, overview, workshop materials, recommended agenda, and time frame for completion, and each program and workshop also includes a brief, optional pre- and post-survey. Section D contains master copies of all handouts needed in the program. Finally, section E, on "Applications and Resources," provides: (1) supplementary materials covering ethnic (specifically, Hispanic) related issues to be used side by side with the corresponding workshops in sections A and B respectively; and (2) directories of films, slides and other educational materials produced by the project, a request form, guides to preparing press and publicity releases, a list of relevant organizations, and a bibliography of 122 references.
