Healthy Relationship Programs

The healthy relationship program offered is to teens and adults ages 15 to 25.

Our certified facilitators use evidence-based curriculum, engaging activities and open discussion to give young people the knowledge and skills to develop healthy, successful relationships in all areas of their life.

We offer three curriculum options from The Dibble Institute, which include Relationship Smarts Plus, Love Notes, and Money Habituates. The classes are free of charge and our facilitators will travel to schools and community groups to lead each lesson. In addition to working with schools and community groups, we also lead workshops throughout Pinellas and Manatee County for couples ages 18-25.

Relationship Smarts

Relationship Smarts Plus is designed for teens ages 15-18. Through twelve interactive lessons teens will learn about setting realistic relationship expectations, communicating feelings and boundaries, improving self-esteem, making healthy and responsible decisions, and communicating effectively.


Love Notes

Love Notes is designed for individuals ages 16-25. Through the thirteen lesson series participants will gain a better understanding of themselves and how that affects their relationships. They will also learn skills for effective communication and conflict management, as well as the importance of setting priorities.

Money Habitudes

Money Habitudes is a three lesson series designed for individuals and couples ages 15-25. Participants will explore assumptions and expectations about money and learn how their relationship with money affects their ability to reach the goals they have set for lifestyle, education, career and family.

SNAP (Stop Now And Plan) Program

SNAP is a 13 week, group program that helps children ages 6-11 and their parents learn how to effectively manage their emotions and keep problems small. The primary goal of SNAP is to help children to stop and think before they act and empower them for improved family relationships, positive social interactions, and success in school.

Children attend gender-specific weekly group sessions for 13 weeks. They learn how to use SNAP in different situations through engaging activities. The parent group meets concurrently with the children’s groups to learn effective child management and SNAP strategies. This group also provides parents with an opportunity to make connections with other parents facing similar challenges.

Research shows the SNAP program leads to positive outcomes for children through fewer arguments, more friends, reduced stress, and improved self-confidence.
