Project AWARE

Project A.W.A.R.E Enterprises joined Live Well San Diego as a recognized partner on April 28, 2017 at program completion ceremony at Murray High School in Vista.  

Project A.W.A.R.E is an acronym for Attitude When Angry and Resolving Emotional Issues Non-Violently.  Project A.W.A.R.E. aims to educate at-risk youths and prepare them to take responsibility for their thoughts and actions.  By becoming emotionally literate, learning/developing basic social skills, and through self-examination, our young students will not only better themselves and their school environment, but also become productive members of society and establish themselves as community leaders.  Project A.W.A.R.E. provides a healthy environment wherein students can safely process their feelings and learn how to effectively incorporate problem-solving skills that they've learned into their daily lives.

Gang prevention and support groups are currently offered in at the Malcolm X Library in Southeastern San Diego, Murray High School in Vista. Project A.W.A.R.E has also been a long-term partner with Carlsbad Police Department’s Juvenile Diversion Program.  Reggie Washington is one of the founding instructors of the San Diego Community Mentors Certification Course at Alliant University. Project A.W.A.R.E. mentors model effective communication, emotional literacy, decision making, school engagement, relationships with peers and family, anger management, and restorative practices. 

Project A.W.A.R.E. aligns with Live Well San Diego by:

  • Supporting Positive Choices by offering safe spaces for youth in our neighborhoods to be mentored and developed as leaders,
