FAST is a nationally and internationally recognized, Parent & Youth Engagement program with tailored components for Elementary, Middle and Senior High Schools.  We will hear about the Middle School FAST.  It is an innovative, collaborative, research-based program that involves middle school youth with their parents and whole families to systematically build multiple levels of protective factors against school failure, violence, delinquency, and substance abuse.
