Using funding from FYSB’s Personal Responsibility Education Program, Mississippi First and its partners developed a collaboration with 32 school districts around the state. If they commit their middle and high schools to participate in the Creating Healthy And Responsible Teens (CHART) initiative, they will receive training, technical assistance and an evidence-based curriculum -- free of charge.
Sanford Johnson and Josh McCawley from Mississippi First share how they've worked with school districts, and the impact CHART is having on students.
