What does the APEX curriculum look like?
APEX is led by mental health professionals and adult mentors trained in substance abuse prevention and includes educational support sessions and social time. The program takes place after school from 4:00 pm – 7:00 pm. Curriculum will start at 5:00 – 5:30 pm to allow plenty of time for participants to arrive after school. We begin each session with an hour and a half of prevention and mentoring curriculum. The remaining time is spent on homework support and socializing.
Removing barriers to teen prevention
While the camp experience is provided at no-cost to participate, we understand that not everyone is in a position to be able to allocate resources toward supplies.
We will provide a meal and snacks at each session, any supplies necessary to participate, and can provide transportation assistance. If you have any concerns about barriers to participating, please reach out to our staff, so we can navigate solutions.
