“The Reality Ride,” created by the Why Try Program, teaches that decisions have consequences in a way that relates to the specific circumstances of each individual’s life. It helps youth understand and change their decision-making process to “get on the right track.” The Reality Ride program includes music and physical activities to reinforce the lessons, encourage learning through participation, and help facilitators connect with youth. The program can be implemented one-on-one or in groups. See a sample lesson.
