Footprints for Life (Grades 2-3)

Footprints for Life is a research-based primary prevention program that builds assets and teaches important life skills to students in grades two and three. Through the use of puppets and stories that feature real-life situations experienced by a children's soccer team, the program offers many opportunities for students to practice the new skills they have learned in a fun and non-threatening way.

The goal of Footprints for Life is to help young children build a strong foundation of life skills rooted in key social competencies. The social competencies that Footprints addresses are:

• Planning and decision-making practice
• Interpersonal skills
• Cultural competence
• Peer pressure
• Peaceful conflict resolution

Footprints for Life is a 6-session program and each session is 45 minutes. If you are interested in more information or would like to bring this program to your community please contact Marigrace Flynn at (201) 740-7098 or mflynn@cafsnj.org.
