What is the Grade-6 All-Stars Program?
All-Stars is a continuum of prevention programs, for grades 4 through 12, designed to delay the onset of risky behaviors with adolescents. With over 30 years of proven results, All-Stars is on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices.
All-Stars Character Education
All-Stars Character Education targets behaviors that are precursors to the development of risky behaviors, such as substance use, fighting, and early sexual activity. The precursor behaviors include lying, stealing, cheating, and bullying. Research shows the earlier one or more of these precursor behaviors begin the higher the risk for substance use, fighting and early sexual activity. The focus of All-Stars Character Education is on strengthening students’ motivation to avoid the precursor behaviors by:
- Establishing positive norms
- Promoting bonding to school or the group
- Building six positive character qualities, including being caring, forgiving, helpful, honest, respectful and responsible
- Promoting positive parental attentiveness
