Part of the DDR team building and leadership courses we teach is ROPES, also known as GLA or Guard Leadership Adventure.
Please read more about our great courses and sign up to have your school or organization participate in our life building and changing workshops. Go to the Support link (under Drug Prevention) to inquire about more information and/or request our services.
This course aims to improve teamwork and leadership skills through the use of low ropes activities. The GLA Basic course is available for students from 4th through 7th grade. The goal of the course is to prevent students from using drugs.
In order to accomplish this, the students are presented with activities that foster self-esteem, team-building, and social skills. The activities present an opportunity for students to exercise responsibility, communication, decision making and critical thinking skills.
By exercising these skills, we strive to make students better decision makers and thus less prone to using drugs. The basic course requires a minimum of four and a maximum of eight sessions. Each session lasts from 45-60 minutes. Sessions are held once a week with one class per session.
