3RD MILLENNUM CLASSROOMS
At 3rd Millennium Classrooms, we know you want to be an impactful guide and influencer. In order to do that, you need an effective and easy-to-implement program to help people to make life choices that will lead to future success. The problem is that most drug, alcohol, and relationship programs are hard to implement, complex, and time- and resource-intensive, which leaves you feeling inadequate, overwhelmed, and frustrated. We believe behavior-change programming should be simple, effective, and easy to implement. We know that people are vulnerable to making poor choices unless they are given the training and skills to make good decisions. That’s why we have partnered with SDSU Research Foundation to provide research-driven, evidence-based online courses which our customers have used to help millions of students make better decisions around alcohol, drugs, shoplifting, and relationships so they can have successful lives.
