I Believe in Me – Kankakee High School

Marriage, Inc. is partnering with KHS to offer the “I Believe in Me” program, scheduled to launch February 19, 2014. This eight-week seminar is designed to help teens:

  • develop goals for their future
  • define their path in life
  • understand the benefits of saving sexual activity for marriage
  • explore the consequences of risk-taking behaviors
  • learn ways to build healthy relationships now and in the future

While this program will offer support in helping students identify sound life choices in many areas, it will also include topical discussion on relationships, sexuality, marriage and family.  Marriage, Inc. is concerned that society and the media have portrayed distorted images of how healthy marriages should look. Many teens have never been exposed to healthy marriage relationships; therefore, they often have slanted views and a lack of respect for the institution.

Research shows that communities with healthy marriages also have better neighborhoods, stronger churches, better schools, lower crime rates and improved economic stability. These benefits have been proven as factors that significantly increase the overall social and economic stability in families, as well as in entire communities.

While it is not Marriage, Inc.’s intent to encourage high school students to immediately consider marriage in their existing relationships, our goal is to present students with sound information that will help them develop healthy relationships.
