The Aware Programs are research- and evidence-based mindfulness education programs that are designed to enhance adolescents’ abilities to be aware of and manage their feelings and thoughts, cope with stress, make healthier decisions, and avoid risky behaviors such as using alcohol or other drugs.
There are three Aware Programs:
1. School-based, instructor-led delivered in high school classrooms and other positive youth development settings.
2. Online, self-paced version for teens with Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD).
3. Online, self-paced version for teens with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS).
