Educational Programs

Wise Options offers a large array of educational programing, free of charge, for children and teens ranging in ages 4 to 17 as well as adults, working professionals and elderly individuals. It is integral that we as a community take a stand against these issues by educating future generations on awareness and safety.

We provide programs for healthy relationships, sexual and domestic violence awareness, bullying and diversity. We also offer custom programing for specific issues that may be relevant to your institution.

All of our resources are carefully monitored and up-to-date, reflecting current and accurate research and statistics. Materials are garnered through best practices approved by the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Domestic Violence (PCADV) and the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR).

If you have any questions or comments, please contact Kacie Hopkins, Wise Options Community Educator, at (570) 322-4637 ext. 112.
