In-school and after-school program that helps build healthy and successful relationships
At Gang Alterative, Inc., we believe in intentionally building healthy relationships. We encourage youth to establish personal lines of respect and live the best version of themselves. In their teenage years, puberty sometimes gets in the way of understanding healthy approaches to building relationships that last.
Meaning “we will wait” in Creole, Nap Tann is an in-school and after-school program for teens that helps build healthy and successful relationships with partners, family, and friends.
Understanding that romantic relationships do not need to be based on sex, Nap Tann aims to help teens build up their self-esteem and discover ways to live a life with purpose and self-worth. It also encourages youth to avoid risky behaviors and focus on meaningful ways to develop strong, nurturing connections.
Nap Tann empowers teens to make healthy decision to avoid risky behaviors. The program is designed to teach youth personal responsibility, self-regulation, goal setting, healthy decision-making, and a focus on meaningful ways to develop strong, nurturing connections.
To improve communication about this topic, Nap Tann also helps parents with ways to discuss sexual issues with their teens, openly and without judgment, and increase their knowledge of teen sexual risks.
