WHAT IS KRUSH?
Check out our video:
K.R.U.S.H. (Kids Rising Up through Support and Healing) was created for students who are dealing with parents/guardians/family members that are or have been incarcerated.
The goal of this program is to provide support for the students through several avenues. We offer a small group setting where the students can be open with their concerns, worries, and positive thoughts as they relate to their incarcerated loved one.
We provide national HECAT and ASCA Counselor standard aligned lessons for the students that show them how to deal with the emotions that come with having a family member incarcerated.
Examples of emotions that we address are: worry, shame, guilt, and embarrassment. We work on self-esteem, positive decision-making skills, and career opportunities. Our goal is to provide PreK-12 students the skills they need to be able to rise above their circumstances and be positive, productive members of society.
We get permission prior to meeting from current guardians. We meet with our students once weekly for 30-45 minute sessions. Our Content Guide (created in July 2018) for all grade levels will also be shared in our trainings. We match state standards as well as national standards to our lessons, depending on where you are located. In training, you receive access to all documents used to date, in addition to the lesson guide book (pre-k-high school).
