Escalating divorce rates are an indication that many people are not making the right choices when it comes to choosing a spouse, nor are they prepared to stand by their commitments. Marriage is about much more than love and goose bumps; it is about a life-long commitment to your partner.

Making It Work teaches teens that choosing a mate is among the most important decisions they will make in their lives. Learning how to be a good partner begins with learning the principles of healthy relationships. In this interactive workbook, students master strategies to find a compatible partner and learn how to establish the protocols that will govern their interaction.

The Making It Work program is available in a Standard format. The comprehensive program includes:

  • Student Workbook

Program Design

Making It Work is an ideal tool for healthy relationship and marriage education.
