This training will prepare facilitators to implement the Too Good for Drugs (TGFD) Program successfully. The Too Good for Drugs Program has separate, developmentally appropriate curriculum for grades K-12; the focus of this training is on SUPP-approved implementation for grades 6-8. TGFD is a school-based prevention program designed to reduce the risk factors and enhance the protective factors related to alcohol, tobacco, and other drug use among students. Participants will gain hands-on experience with the core curriculum while acquiring essential prevention education teaching strategies. The trainer will familiarize participants with the research, theory, and concepts behind the program and provide an opportunity for facilitation practice.


Note: Materials are not included with this training program; participants are required to bring their own Teacher’s Curriculum to the training. Participants who do not have current materials may obtain them from the Mendez Foundation at
