As health educators continue to seek solutions for combating risk behaviors such as alcohol and drug use, sexual activity, and violence in youth, novel approaches for engagement in education are needed.

 

The Future Leaders Outreach Network (FLON) programs were developed, implemented, and evaluated in an urban setting with predominantly African American youth. Curriculum content is tailored toward the cultural needs of African American youth and their parents or primary caregivers.

 

Preliminary results suggest the curriculum instilled and reinforced commitment toward positive attitudes and behaviors. This article proposes a new model for health education in an urban, public school setting.
