We raise youth leaders to develop good character and to model and teach about the benefits of sexual abstinence, in preparation for marriage and successful family formation.
Every DC youth from middle school through high school will receive education about the benefits of abstinence, and will have the opportunity to hear from peers who believe in abstinence. Accountability and peer mentoring relationships will be set up between older youth or adults of the same sex who believe in abstinence. Middle school youth will be STAR (Students Teaching Abstinence & Responsibility) Guides for upper elementary. High school youth will be STAR Guide mentorsfor Middle School youth. College Youth will be STAR Guide mentors for High School youth. This will greatly reduce the rate of HIV, STDs, out of wedlock births, and heartbreak.
