Emma E. Booker Elementary Prevention Program
JFCS offers behavior specialists to catch destructive habits early. Early learning helps children be successful in the classroom and prevents problematic behavior such as verbal and physical aggression, insubordination and substance abuse. School officials and classroom teachers work with the JFCS social worker to help students with behavior changes to ensure success in the classroom. Similar to the SATOSS middle school program, elementary school students are matched with trained adult mentors and/or tutors who serve as positive role models and provide academic and emotional support.
