Program 1

Our Too Good Programs are taught by school districts serving more than 5.7 million children throughout the United States. These curricula offer a turn-key solution to drug and violence prevention, meeting the educational needs of students in grades K-12. Our programs include Too Good for Drugs (K-12), Too Good for Violence (K-8), Too Good for Drugs & Violence - High School, Too Good for Drugs & Violence - Staff Development, and Too Good for Drugs & Violence - After-School Activities. The Foundation also supports these curricula with training of educators who will teach the programs to students. Training of Trainer sessions are also offered to certify educators to instruct others to teach our curricula. Locally, in Tampa, Florida our educators have taught these curricula for more than 28 years in the School District of Hillsborough County (SDHC), the 10th largest district in the United States serving more than 180,000 students.

Principal Officer

Mr. Charles E. Mendez Jr

BIO

Mr. Mendez has a diverse business background, including real estate development, finance, environmental services and transportation. He has served on the boards of several publicly-traded companies, various community non-profits and as a governor's appointee to the Florida High Speed Rail Commission. In 1975, he believed that providing young people with information about the dangers of drugs, alcohol, tobacco and managing peer pressure was essential to making good decisions about their health. Today, the Foundation is moving forward to address two urgent problems facing our children: Teenage driving and DUI prevention, and children's obesity and related health issues.
