Steered Straight

“Helping Young People Help Themselves”

Steered Straight, Inc. is a non-profit educational and prevention/intervention organization, committed to reaching children, teens and young adults with a message of reality about life-choices and the importance of consequential thinking so that they understand that there are consequences to their actions. Many people do not believe it is in their backyard, mostly due to stigma.

Today there exists an ever-increasing need to reach the youth of our communities. With school violence, escalating use of drugs and alcohol by teens, accelerated recruitment into gangs, bullying and vandalism, and subsequent life changing consequences, children and young adults need a profound message delivered to them from experienced, identifiable and caring messengers.

Specializing in dynamic school assemblies, we bring powerful speakers – some of whom are living examples of negative life choices. Our presentations are the missing message that our students need to hear. Our educators and parents a need to hear our message about the realities of what is happening with the social consequences of the choices that our young citizens are making.

Why Steered Straight? 

What makes Steered Straight unique:

Steered Straight is much more than a visit – our “Back to the Classroom” year-long curriculum sets our program apart. The program kicks off with a dynamic presentation given by skilled, motivational speakers with real-life experience and poignant stories of consequence. We compliment the message with a daily, weekly, and monthly collection of education, interactive exercises, and prevention material.

What audience members will gain from these seminars and presentations:

  • Better understanding about consequences of negative choices 
  • Thought provoking lessons about the lasting effects of poor decisions
  • Real-life examples of consequences and poor choices
  • Message resonates long after the assemblies and presentations are over

We deliver a message that will help children, especially teenagers, to:

  • Question their assumptions about bullying, gangs, drug use and crime
  • Analyze the social norms of the peers around them
  • Develop a self-paradigm to live by rather than the social mirror so many of them use to gauge their direction
  • Learn to rationally and intelligently make the right life choices
