Today, more than ever, children need help in becoming responsible adults as they face countless social economic challenges. The Masonic Model Student Assistance Program trains educators in setting up in-school Core Teams to observe and take action to provide help to at-risk children.
The intensive three-day training session is offered to any school in Michigan and offers practice sessions designed to simulate real events. Presentations are also given on subjects including Characteristics of an Addictive Family, Pharmacological Effects of Drugs, and Creating a Crisis Response Team.
The objective is early and effective intervention with students demonstrating patterns of behavior that could threaten their success at school and could be indicators of problems associated with internal or external abuse.
This program has had a dramatic impact on improving the lives of our nation's young people. For more information on this important program:
