SRAE Component 2: Adult-Supervised Activities
Through component 2, SRAE projects provide adult-supervised activities that create educational, recreational, or vocational opportunities for youth ages 10-13. These opportunities build on participants' strengths and shape their ideas about and aspirations for the future.
Activities should stimulate cognitive, social, physical, and/or emotional growth and provide a context for productive relationship building with adults and peers. The activities provide alternatives to sex, demonstrate the advantages of postponing sexual activity, and promote the development of a skill set that can support a successful transition into healthy young adulthood.
Adult-supervised activities can occur within another after-school or youth group program, or as a stand-alone program. Examples of appropriate activities could include:
- Workplace visits or career exploration
- Cultural events
- Sports and other physical activity
- Performing arts
- Visual arts
- Scientific exploration
- Games that challenge the mind and encourage deep interaction
- Nature-focused outdoor activities
- Service-learning activities
