Life Skills Curriculum was offered to approximately 400 students in the 6th grade and 130 7th grade students in school districts in Big Stone, Chippewa, Lac qui Parle, Swift and Yellow Medicine Counties. The Life Skills Curriculum covers such topics as self-esteem, tobacco, alcohol, stress management, and positive peer relationships. It motivates youth to make healthy lifestyle decisions by providing them with training in resist- ing peer and media pressures, making decisions and solving problems, man- aging anxiety, and communicating effectively. It is a school-based pre- vention program designed for stu- dents in the 6th, 7th, and 8th grades. A class was available this summer to train instructors from the entire south- western corner of the state. Six attend- ed from this area representing Ortonville, Dawson-Boyd, Canby, Lac qui Parle and KMS school dis- tricts. This curriculum aligns with the Minnesota Grad Standards, which is an added benefit for the instructors and students. This program has been used for over 20 years and has contin- uous research that shows reductions in smoking and alcohol use in teens. The research has also shown an increase in self esteem and positive peer rela- tions. The PAST 5 Coalition (People Against Smoking and Tobacco) spon- sored the training the past three years. PAST 5 is a five-county coalition that applied for and received the Local Tobacco Prevention Endowment Grant to help meet the Minnesota state goal of reducing tobacco use among teens by 30% by the year 2005. The grant money is used not only to train the instructors, but also to purchase the curriculum for the school districts. One of the goals of the PAST 5 Coalition is to have all school districts in the five-county area implement the Life Skills Curriculum. If you would like to receive more information about Life Skills or the PAST 5 Coalition, please contact your local Countryside Public Health Office in Ortonville at 320-839-1635.
