The LeeShore Center
In a cooperative effort between The LeeShore Center and the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District, staff and volunteers provide age-appropriate Healthy Relationships/Violence Prevention presentations.
During the 2011-2012 school year, 154 presentations were made to 3178 students in grades K-12.
The LeeShore Center curriculum was approved by KPBSD in 2002 and includes educational information on: dating violence, self-esteem, kindness and respect, bullying prevention, conflict resolution, sexual harassment, domestic violence, healthy relationships, communication skills and many more.
