YOUTH ALIVE is a comprehensive program that has brought about awareness of dangerous behaviors that plague youth worldwide. It is a POSITIVE, PEER, PREVENTION PROGRAM (4 P’s).

Positive because it focuses on positive alternatives with Christ, the highest power, which results in a positive interpersonal communication with one another. Participants treat each other with “Honor, Dignity, and Respect,” valuing each other as a child of God, with no racism, no prejudice, no put downs that promotes a feeling of complete acceptance. God made all things positive and He wants us to associate with one another in the positive heavenly environment.

Peer because youth instead of adults are reaching out to other youth and children to be drug-free. The connectedness between youth and other youth provide a natural high sense of satisfaction, with increased self-esteem, and an uplifting experience through Christ. Thus, the use of drugs become undesirable.

Prevention because it focuses on its theme “MY CHOICE – DRUG FREE,” presented through all components of the program. Thus, encouraging a drug-free commitment to all the participants and to stop using for those youth who had experimented on drugs casually.

Program has five elements, namely:

  • Information

  • Environmental Change

  • Personal and Spiritual Growth

  • Positive Alternative

  • Leadership Training

YOUTH ALIVE program has helped build capable youth leaders committed to a drug-free living and making a difference in their world.
