PreVenture is an evidence-based prevention program that uses brief, personality-focused interventions to promote mental health and delay substance use among youth.
The program aims to equip young people with self-efficacy and cognitive behavioural skills to help them cope with the numerous developmental challenges that many adolescents face, such as academic stress, peer pressure, interpersonal conflict, and identity development.
PreVenture recognizes the importance of individual differences in how people interpret and cope with different types of challenges in life.
The PreVenture Program can be administered in two 90-minute sessions, making it easy for schools and communities to incorporate it into their curriculum.
