Sexual Risk Avoidance (SRA) - Our SRA volunteers present a program called, I Decide for ME. The aim of I Decide for Me, is to make each student aware of their true value and worth, the benefits of abstinence, and the risks of being sexually active before marriage. The presentation is focused on abstinence, but also emphasizes making healthy choices. Topics such as drugs, alcohol, pornography use, and sharing of inappropriate content via social media are also discussed. The students are given tools and information to assist them in making healthy choices for themselves as well as their future spouse.

This program is offered to all Darke county schools reaching approximately 500 area high school students each year. The districts of Ansonia, Arcanum, Greenville, Mississinawa, and Tri-Village currently have the program presented to either their freshman or sophomore classes. Find out more
