LIFE SKILLS CURRICULUM
ARISE life skills lessons engage youth and get the message through.
What should you watch for after the lessons? A new sense of well-being, and engaged, motivated, positive attitudes. ARISE has developed an extensive library of evidence-based life skills materials to teach these valuable skills to youth of all ages.
Online & Onsite Staff Training
Every ARISE life skills instructor training program provides multi-sensory stimulation that allows participants to gain skills and competencies that encourage optimal implementation of the ARISE life skills curricula.
ARISE training encompasses the many facets of conducting vibrant, attention grabbing interactive group sessions. Particularly valuable are positive strategies for accommodating youth who bring anger, bullying and emotional problems to group sessions. Add training to your own site and make these workshops part of your grant proposals.

“Our facility uses the ARISE Life Skills Work in Progress series “Anger Management” book. We are currently working on the “Cage the Rage” lesson which is part of this book. Our youth love the worksheets which are not too long and leave plenty of time for discussion after the worksheets are completed.”
April Easterling, Dundedin, Michigan
“The most helpful part of the online training was having interactive activities/assignments throughout the lesson. Actually seeing people go through the training and possibly asking questions that you have is also helpful. The trainer was really enthused, energetic, and knowledgeable about the curriculum. She wanted to make sure that the trainees had a clear understanding of what was being taught and the contents being transmitted..”

“The most positive experience was to see this difference the lesson made in the lives of the youth and to witness the youth change for the better.” “Yes! I thank God for ARISE because the lessons have not only helped me with the youth, but the lessons also helped me personally.” “The youth have become much more committed to their life goals.” “Since becoming an ARISE Life Skill Instructor I have seen youth become more interested in life.”
