With an emphasis on communication, Guiding Good Choices (GGC) offers proven techniques and effective tools to help parents not only improve communication with their children but also develop healthy family values and clear behavioral expectations; control and express anger constructively; strengthen family bonds and trust; and prevent children from engaging in substance use and other risky behaviors.

The summer GGC consists of 4 workshops, held twice a week for two consecutive weeks. This is an evidence-based program that requires participants to attend all four workshops.
