Schools + Parents
Second Step

Currently implemented at Manhattan Beach Middle School 

The Second Step program helps schools teach and model essential communication, coping and decision-making skills that help adolescents navigate around common pitfalls such as peer pressure, substance abuse and bullying (both in-person and online). The program reports reduced aggression and support for a more inclusive environment that helps students stay in school, make good choices and experience social and academic success.
