The National Runaway Safeline, a 24/7 hotline for youth in crisis and their families, has updated its Let’s Talk: Runaway Prevention Curriculum with new topics, resources, and activities. An evidence-based curriculum, Let’s Talk includes 14 modules on topics ranging from communication and listening to the realities of running away to strategies youth can use to reduce stress.
If you use the free curriculum, the hotline requests that you and your organization send back demographic forms and pre- and post-activity worksheets. The information enables the National Runaway Safeline to evaluate its curriculum. And you’ll benefit, too -- by sending in the forms you qualify to receive monthly bonus materials for your facilitators and your youth participants.
