Raising Highly Capable Kids is an evidence based, 13 week program for parents. The RHCK program helps parents raise healthy, caring, and responsible children. The program, Raising Highly Capable Kids™ teaches parents about the Search Institute’s 40 Developmental Assets in the categories of Supporting Children, Empowerment, Setting Boundaries and Expectations, Constructive Use of Time, Commitment to Learning, Positive Values, Social Competence, and Positive Identity. Parents listen to presentations, hold discussions, and engage in activities to help them apply what they learn in their own homes. Raising Highly Capable Kids™ is being implemented across the nation and even over-seas to strengthen families.
Ben Hill County Family Connection received a grant in August 2019 to bring this program to the Fitzgerald community. For more information contact the Family Connection office.
