The Gadsden County Sheriff's Office Teen Success Academy's Mission is to prepare our youth to live and experience a more positive, productive and safe Life by offering services to combat Bullying, School Violence and to help with Anger Management.
Our Life Coaches work with our partner schools to offer services inside the classroom discussing the impacts of gun violence and how to keep schools and local communities safe.
We keep "Positivity" at the forefront of every thing we do. Our goal is to instill positivity into every service we provide. This is the basis of our approach to helping students deal with anger by using positive and healthy coping mechanisms.
With most of our students being described as "Digital Natives," we understand how important it is to show them how to conduct themselves, positively, Online. Our Digital Life Coach specializes in providing Digital Citizenship sessions through our online portal to encourage Positive Leadership among our students on and offline.
This Fall(2021), the Teen Success Academy is introducing a new program called Students With Opportunities To Achieve and Rise(S.O.A.R.). The year long program is for students ages 14-17, and provides employment readiness trainings and work experience opportunities to learn and receive a stipend while doing it.
