Building Resilient Families

Dear Parent or Guardian,


The Orange County Health Care Agency’s Prevention & Intervention Division is offering a series of classes called Transitions as a supplement to your child’s regularly scheduled coursework. The Transitions curriculum focuses on skill building to help students learn how to identify and stay away from harmful behaviors like bullying or drug use, and how to make healthy choices that promote positive well-being and success. These classes are taught through interactive discussions, skill demonstrations, and role play activities.


In addition to the student classes, a three-part series for parents, guardians, or other caregivers will be offered in the evenings.  These parent sessions are intended to help reinforce the concepts the students are learning by supporting parents at home with problem-solving skills that address the challenges students face at this stage of their development. 


Parent classes will be held at Yorba Linda High School (19900 Bastanchury Road, Yorba Linda, CA  92886) from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm on the following dates:

We look forward to supporting you and your child in their education!
