The Grove operates multiple school- and community-based programs in order to provide elementary-aged students with the skills they need to achieve mental and emotional wellness, and avoid risky behaviors as they enter adolescence.
The Grove partners with Seminole County Schools and the Seminole Sheriff’s Office to offer the Drugs, Violence and Safety (DVS)program. Grove prevention specialists are placed full time at a Title I school in Seminole County, and teach a curriculum that focuses on mental and emotional wellness, nutrition, substance awareness, and injury prevention.
The ALPHA Model offers individual and group counseling to students at English Estates Elementary.
Additionally, The Grove serves 60+ students on our prevention campus within the Goldsboro neighborhood of Sanford: Sunshine Grove and Arts in Action. Sunshine Grove serves Kindergarten through fifth grade students and offers a broad look at the life skills needed to enter adolescence, including decision-making, goal-setting, and relationship-building. At Arts in Action, upper elementary students use the expressive arts to foster teamwork and create positive change at home and in their community.
Finally, The College Bound Project provides limited-income, first generation and underrepresented students with the academic enrichment, social support and life skills necessary to enroll, excel and graduate from a four-year college.
