Several schools in the Gateway area are using the program, which targets youngsters in kindergarten through fifth grade. It's designed to give them tools to help them be successful in and out of the classroom. The plan focuses onproblem solving skills, awareness of unsafe situations and daily core values implemented through basic life skills training. The goal is to incorporate basic life skills into the lives of children to encourage them to aspire to do great things.
