Summer Level 2 (ages 9-12)

The KBEP believes that preventing relationship violence starts at an early age. During the middle school years, students are reaching adolescence. We at the KBEP feel that it is at this developmental stage where youth should be familiarized with the relationships they have with themselves and others. Learning the importance of choosing friends carefully, keeping positive self-esteem, and approaching conflicts productively provide part of the foundation needed to create healthy and safe relationships.


Summer Level Two Objectives

By the end of the program, students will be able to:

  • Identify relationships with self and others
  • Understand the definition of relationship violence
  • Recognize the importance of trust, honesty, and respect between friends
  • Be aware of the connection between positive self-esteem and healthy relationships with others
  • Understand the role of assertive communication in approaching conflicts
