Character education and asset development are at the core of Too Good for Violence: Social Perspectives providing students with the skills, knowledge, and attitudes they need for positive social development and supportive relationships. Too Good builds protection within the student by: providing opportunities for pro-social involvement, establishing positive norms including healthy beliefs and clear standards, promoting bonding to pro-social peers, and increasing personal and social skills. The program also mitigates the risk factors associated with problem behaviors by addressing: poor social skills, peer rejection, inappropriate social behaviors, and friends who engage in problem behaviors.
