YESS Officers and Team UP partner
Team Up is working with YESS officers to collaborate 21st century learning with YESS programs, which will be taught in 13 DC schools. The DC Sheriff’s office explains “ We have alcohol, drug abuse and suicide prevention programs through Y.E.S.S., including our Parent Academy Resources. Our anonymous Text-A-Tip program is a way students can tell us things privately that they don’t want to say out loud. We’ll listen and are there every day because your kids are our priority.”
6th, 7th and 8th grade topics include lessons on: Relationships, Internet Safety and Drugs. Team Up will be partnering by supplying officers needed classroom tools to make the lessons innovative, hands on and by getting kids up and moving.
We look forward to this partnership to help kids learn better and succeed in these valuable lessons.
