Project W.O.R.T.H.  “When Our Relationships Take Hold”couple

Inspiring youth to make healthy relationship choices.  A FREE program for York and Adams School Districts.

Building Healthy Relationships

Tender Care’s SRA program, “Project W.O.R.T.H.” (Formerly called “WAIT Training”)  is a dynamic, interactive, 4-day lesson plan that offers essential information for students to make healthy choices in their relationships.  This practical and affirming program addresses sexual pressures currently confronting young people and is the ideal compliment to standard health and family classes.
Tender Care’s SRA program and supplemental lessons are based on objective, medically accurate research.  With respect for individual choice, our trained educators help students frame their future goals with informed decisions and optimal health.   We recognize the value of input from parents.  Consequently, daily home assignments provide the ideal opportunity for positive discussion with a son or daughter.

Teacher Feedback: 

“I most appreciate the fact that the students look forward to the “Tender Care lady” coming in to talk, and that those talks are never considered to be preaching.  Students are able to make good and appropriate decisions for themselves based on what is right and true for themselves, not based on what somebody else wants them to do. “
Middle School Health Teacher
“Every year I look forward to Project WORTH for various reasons.  One of the most important is tackling the topic of healthy relationships which is a real-life issue.  Also, young people this age are very interested in friends and dating relationships.  Lastly,  the program emphasizes the importance of healthy relationships by bringing in speakers and addressing issues that they may never experience in a school setting.”
Middle School Teacher
“The W.O.R.T.H. lesson material integrated perfectly with my lessons on hazards to healthy development and romantic relationships in adolescence. I so greatly appreciate the support from the TC SRA program and their commitment to educating young people to these hazards. I look forward to collaborating on these lessons in the future.”
