The Seven Challenges

The Seven Challenges curriculum is a common sense, decision-making approach to working with teen alcohol and drug issues. The program is a partnership between Santa Cruz City Schools, and County Alcohol and Drug Programs and guides youth through a process that helps them look at their substance use, reflect on the impact and consequences and focus on personal goals. Students meet in a small group setting to discuss issues, journal about their thoughts and experiences and are provided adult guidance and support. The Seven Challenges is a collaborative response between school administration, parents, and the student to addressing the use or possession of alcohol and other drugs.
