Youth and families learn about acculturative stress, substance abuse prevention, sex education, HIV risks, and education through a cultural lens.

Children that benefit the most are those who have mild behavioral problems in the classroom, experience emotional problems, or experience learning difficulties.
Overall the program aims to:
- Reduce family stress
- Reduce Marijuana and other substance use
- Reduce youth behavior problems
