WHY STUDENTS?

The TNP teaches the country’s leading relationship education curriculum: REAL Essentials. The Advance curriculum is specifically designed to equip adults to teach high school students skills for combating challenges they face in adolescence, while the Starting Point curriculum is specially designed to successfully launch children into adolescence. It teaches relationship skills that reduce friendship drama and enhance confidence and social success. Lesson content captivates the heart and directs students toward positive decision making. The sexual health components of this Student Life Program are SRA (Sexual Risk Avoidance) approved. All lessons are inclusive, evidence based and medically accurate.

                                 ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS

The True North Project helps prepare students for better life outcomes:

 

  • Realign marriage and parenthood and put them back in the proper order by promoting the "success sequence" which is 1) get educated 2) get a job 3) get married 4) then have children.  

  • Reduce their risk of poverty.  Census data show that if all Americans followed the success sequence at the same rate as Americans had in 1970, the poverty rate would be cut by around 70% — without additional government spending.  No welfare program, however amply funded, could ever hope for anything approaching such success.

  • Decrease risk behaviors including drug abuse, alcohol abuse 

  • Avoid teen pregnancy

  • Graduate from High school

  • Make better grades

  • Build stronger relationships and establish healthy boundaries

  • Learn better do’s and don’ts regarding social media usage

  • Recognize and respect differences in others

  • Learn effective communication techniques for navigating conflict and expressing oneself

  • Learn relationship “red flags” and develop healthy dating strategies and ideas for staying connected with good friends

  • Social and emotional well being

  • How to plan for and achieve the future they want

  • Lead healthier lives

  • Increase their developmental assets

  • Develop their individual identity

  • How to identify and avoid bullying

  • Developing leadership skills for gaining future employment/keeping a job

  • Sex in the context of love and its effect on whole person health

Over the last 10 years we have served thousands of students throughout all of Florida. We come in as guest speakers mostly, but some schools bring us in for entire semesters.

TrueNorth Research

“The data demonstrate an urgent need to address teen sex in Florida as 16% of Middle school and 45% of High school students in this area report that they have already engaged in sexual intercourse. The WAIT Project demonstrably changes attitudes, knowledge and skills relevant to teen sexual activity. Data show statistically reliable change from pre to post on the vast majority of items which represent the following categories:   Attitudes about Abstinence, Knowledge, Beliefs that Match the A-H Principles, Skills and Behavioral Intentions. Based on pre-post results, it is clear that the Wait Project is demonstrating an immediate impact on participating youth. Collecting longer term data (e.g., at 6 and 12 months) will determine sustainability and long-term effects. The WAIT Project is being highly successful in meeting its aim to educate and support teen decisions to postpone sexual activity until marriage.”

"Live the Life provided the “Choices Matter” program to 895 youth (485 middle school and 410 high school) throughout the Tallahassee, FL region.  Data demonstrates statistical significance from pre-test to post-test within 21 items which represent the following categories: Peer Self-Esteem, Child/Parent Communication, Future Orientation, Beliefs that Match A-H Criteria, Curriculum Themes, Behavioral Intentions, and Knowledge. The 9 statistically significant items highlighted in this report represent the greatest favorable shift in terms of percent change (10% and above).  Based on these results, it appears that the Live the Life is having an immediate impact on the youth who have participated in the program as demonstrated by statistically significant percent increases ranging from 3.1% to 26.1%. Live the Life is meeting its objective of educating and supporting teen decisions to postpone sexual activity until marriage.
