We at PG-PG understand that positive self esteem is an important responsibility for all adults who interact with them. This program is designed to assist youth in feeling good about themselves, and understand they are better able to resist negative influences in life when positive self esteem is developed. We will teach youth that positive self-esteem enables them to grow up and be happy, responsible, and contributing adults.
