Life Skills Training Program
Life Skills Training (LST) is a tobacco, alcohol, and drug abuse (mainly marijuana)
prevention program for middle or junior high school students. It is a three-year
program that provides adolescents with the motivation and skills necessary
to resist peer and media pressures to use drugs, fosters the development of
personal self-management skills and general social skills, and promotes anti-drug
In its current form, the 3 year school-based program is designed for middle and junior high school students (year 1: grades 6/7, year 2: grades 7/8, year 3: grades 8/9). The program has worked with a diverse range of adolescents, having been tested on white, African-American, and Latino youth. It also works for boys and girls, as well as adolescents living in suburban and urban environments. The program may also be implemented through community-based organizations that serve adolescents.

Note: A version has been designed for upper elementary students (third through sixth grade). It contains material for a total of 24 classes (8 classes per year) to be taught during the 3rd, 4th, and 5th grades or the 4th, 5th and 6th grades. This Sociometrics-produced LST program box only includes the middle and junior high curriculum (sixth- through ninth-grade curriculum), and not the upper elementary curriculum.
