The Raising Healthy Children program is a social development approach to positive youth development. The school program is based on the belief that every teacher makes a difference in the life of a child, that every child can succeed, and that the family is an important partner in learning. No single entity can ensure the positive development of a community's young people. That's why the Raising Healthy Children program involves the school,the family, and peers to promote the positive development of students. The program takes roughly 3 years to implement.
