Teen Programs

FRIENDS FIRST offers a variety of teen programs through classroom presentations and workshops.


Mentoring Program

STARS is a student-led, peer-mentoring program that provides support, character development and healthy relationship education to youth.  STARS stands for Students 

Teaching About Relationships and Success and is implemented weekly at school sites.


National Conference

The STARS NATIONAL CONFERENCE (SNC) is an action-packed, four-day event each summer that empowers and motivates teens to become leaders, build healthy relationships, be a positive influence to their peers, and avoid high-risk behaviors.



Project A.I.M. (Adult Identity Mentoring) is a positive youth development program that encourages youth to articulate their personal goals by using exercises that teach students the skills required to achieve these goals.



FRIENDS FIRST provides professional, skilled presenters for middle and high school assemblies. Our presenters are known for making the presentations relatable, interactive, and meaningful.

#Mentorlife Summit

The #MENTORLIFE Summit provides ongoing leadership training for mentors and provides powerful tools to encourage mentors to continue to make healthy positive choices.  Youth receive high energy, motivational messages from national youth speakers and attend practical workshops.
