Success

Strive for excellence in all you do, think, and say. Be a positive influence for your peers.

CHARACTER TRAIT:

Excellence is to understand the best and right thing to do in all circumstances and to make the best choices. It is also humility- the absence of pride and arrogance in knowing when one has failed to choose the best action and a willingness to make amends. Excellence is the use of self-discipline and self-control in keeping personal boundaries and achieving personal goals. By practicing excellence, you may become a role model to others, helping them to also make the best choices for their lives.

LESSON:

Peer presenters challenge youth to resist peer pressures and to choose abstinence from use of tobacco, drugs, and alcohol and especially to choose abstinence-until-marriage. With their personal messages that “we are abstinent and striving for excellence,” the peer presenters are able to make a difference for the participants of the classes. (This lesson is best presented by a group of teens several years older than those in the class.)

Students will:

  • Experience how to be role models for their peers
  • Identify ways other teens remain abstinent from risk behavior, especially risky sexual activities
  • Define “excellence”

Activities: (these include review of the previous lesson and this lesson’s poster)

  • Personal testimonies from local teenagers who are living an abstinent lifestyle
  • Questions and answers with the peer presenters
  • Skits and games portraying ways to remain abstinent from high risk behaviors
  • Assignments
