Safe2B - You & Me
Safe2B – You & Me is a community education program offered 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.

Programs For Couples
SNAP (Stop Now And Plan)
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.

A nationally recognized prevention, outreach and education program, services are conducted through elementary and middle school presentations (for youth 10 – 17) and other community venues.
