Family Education Initiative

Project Arrow is funded by the Department of Public Instruction & Center for Safer Schools.  According to the Center for Safer Schools, during the 2015 – 2017 academic years, the most frequently reported crimes in both middle and high schools was possession of a controlled substance, possession of a weapon excluding firearms, and possession of an alcoholic beverage.

Project Arrow is a coaching and leadership program for middle and high school students implemented throughout five schools and one community program in Granville County. Project Arrow teaches students how to develop healthy responses to trauma and stress relative to substance use disorder, bullying, mental health, and the perceived need to possess weapons for protection.
