TOP is designed to meet the developmental needs of middle and high school teens and can be implemented in a variety of settings, including in-school, after-school, through community-based organizations or in systems and institutional settings, including residential facilities.

Positive Potential – 7th grade

CTB (Choosing the Best; abstinence only) – 8th grade

Choosing the Best is direct enough to command teens’ attention, this 8-session curriculum also helps communicate, dynamically and positively, the value of choosing sexual delay. Videos that open each lesson lead naturally to vibrant discussion. The 45-minute segments include topics such as sexual violence prevention, understanding consent, and healthy relationships, along with role-plays that help teens avoid at-risk behaviors.
