An intervention for fifth graders at risk for school problems focused on life-skills training and cross-age teaching of younger students. Parent involvement included two meetings and weekly postcards from their children. Parents reported communication with their child about the program; increased knowledge about life skills, support from school, and empowerment; and greater strengths in their children. (Author/SV)
