The Youth Prevention Selective Programs (YPS) provide drug and alcohol prevention to school districts in a 7-county area which include Calhoun, DeWitt, Goliad, Gonzales, Jackson, Lavaca, and Victoria counties.

The goal of the Youth Prevention Selected Program (YPS) is to preclude the onset of the use of alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use by youth and to foster the development of positive social and physical environments that promote healthy and drug-free lifestyles.

Education is achieved through the facilitation of curriculum-based support groups.  CBSG is a 10-session interactive drug prevention curriculum designed for students ages 6-12. The sessions take place in a small group setting 1 time a week for 45 mins. Throughout the 10 sessions, students learn about self-image, feelings, handling anger, friendship skills, healthy choices, and refusal skills. These components are delivered through discussion, games, role-playing exercises, videos, and student worksheets.
