SERIES 2: CHOOSE EXCELLENCE
Character Trait: Excellence
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.
Peer presenters challenge youth to resist peer pressures and to choose to abstain from the use of tobacco, drugs, and alcohol. With their personal messages that “we are 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.)
