What About BOB? 
Keep an eye out for everything you ever wanted to know about BOB and how 'he' can help your children on a daily basis. BOB (Body on Board) has been a mainstay of TPP  Programming at all grade levels, although sometimes he looks a little different depending on grade level. 'He' is our visual  of how complex we all really are, and the things we need to develop as we grow into complete, happy and healthy adults.Ask a Geauga  8th or 9th grader some time if they know who TPP's BOB is!

TPP Continues to Develop Social Media Initiative:
E Risk-Relationships in a Digital World 
Helping children grow to become happy, healthy and successful adults is complicated by the fast paced growth of technology, including the growing use of social media. Geauga ESC, with the support of Geauga Job and Family Services has identified a need to address the developmental, social and emotional impact of the digital world on youth, their relationships, and their future.
ESC offers classroom presentation in grade 6, 7 and 8, parent education and community awareness initiatives, and works with YLP leaders to identify needs and promote the positive use of social media in all grades.
