WHAT IS BABES?
Beginning Awareness Basic Education Studies (BABES) is a primary prevention program designed to give children a lifetime of protection from substance abuse. BABES accomplishes this by assisting young people to develop positive living skills and by providing them with accurate, non-judgmental information about the use and abuse of alcohol and other drugs.

The evaluation provided Class A Evidence and the evaluation evidence demonstrated an Outcome Evidence Rating of ‘effective’.
WHAT DOES BABES DO?
The purpose of BABES is to enable children to learn and practice living/loving skills and make positive early decisions about alcohol and other drugs. BABES is a classic present-day application of affirmative life principles.

Hope for the Future is dependent upon the existence of an environment which creates within each child the quality of self-esteem that is the basis for the realization of the child’s full potential: physical, mental and spiritual. It is the kind of environment which is strong, healthy, nurturing and safe. effectively addressing the problems of today’s youth, such as drop-outs, pregnancy, suicide and alcohol and other drug abuse.
