Be Strong: From the Inside Out Curriculum
Be Strong is an asset-based, development program for young women that builds on concepts of womanhood, respect, and positive relationships as a strategy for health promotion and violence prevention. The Be Strong curriculum consists of four empowerment modules which contain activities that enhance developmental assets and provide practical tools for self-discovery, critical thinking, problem solving, and decision-making. The program objective is to help young women define and discover the kind of women they want to be while developing protective factors against violence and other unhealthy behaviors. It also provides a forum for young women to connect with one another, honor themselves, and create healthy relationships.
