Seventh Graders and a parent/grandparent/guardian are encouraged to attend.

Project Safeguard is an offsite conference designed for 7th graders addressing current issues impacting teenagers today focusing on substance abuse prevention. Class sessions offered address peer pressure, self-esteem, alcohol, tobacco and drug education, media messages, Internet safety, and communication between parents and students. Students and adult participants will have the opportunity to attend three class sessions, offered in four categories: adult and students, boys only, girls only and parent/adult only.

Project Safeguard began over 20 years ago in Merrimack, New Hampshire, when a middle school teacher recognized that middle school was a transition time for young people and that their exposure to risky behaviors increased significantly as they entered the preteen years. At the same time, there were not a lot of opportunities for parents to learn about these risks either. Project Safeguard has the effect of opening avenues of communication to allow for a greater mutual understanding on the part of parent and child.

A Special Thank You to Exeter Hospital for their generous support for this day!
Jason Holder, Ed.D, LMHC, will be joining us from AdventureLore as our Keynote Speaker.

Adventurelore School Programs are designed based on the needs and desires of the participating school. Our programs range from small group designs (as small as 4 people) to groups as large as 300. All programs (including our public speaking engagements) involve the use of adventure activities, adventure therapy and experiential learning to provide insight and understanding. The programs are designed to demonstrate a positive model that participants can apply to their school community life and beyond. Our programs are always designed collaboratively with the school. They range from single day programs to ongoing therapeutic groups for smaller populations.

Jason Holder, Ed.D, LMHC
Clinical Director 
In the late 1970's and early 1980's, Jason was the Physical Education Department Head at Timberlane Regional High School. During the summer, he took students who had struggled in the physical education classes, on canoe trips to make up the missed credit. After returning one summer, a parent told Jason that their child's experience was life changing and asked if Jason would consider talking with their son on a regular basis. This became a common response. Jason's success led him to go on to receive his doctorate and earn his clinical mental health counselor certification and develop a highly successful private practice. Jason founded Health Wealth Inc. and Adventurelore Programs in 1982. He has taught classes at Boston University, Bridgewater State University, and Golden Gate University. Over the past 15 years, he has published two books in Adventure Therapy and Adventure Activities.
