Building Brighter Futures
That is what Charlie Dibble wanted to do when he launched The Dibble Institute. He saw many young people uncertain about their chances of having a successful marriage and family life. He was determined to help.
Now, through Dibble’s Building Brighter Futures program you, too, can help young people in your community.
The Building Brighter Futures program is designed to impact large number of students in an efficient model that brings evidence based instruction into the classroom at a low cost per student by utilizing existing systems.
We know from research that Dibble’s relationship skills programs reduce violence, both verbal and physical, increase communications and closeness to parents, and decrease risky sexual and other youth behaviors. We also know from what teachers and students tell us that this instruction changes lives.
We start with your vision of success. Tell us what kind of young people you most want to reach and the amount you want to invest, and we will develop a plan and implement proven relationship skills programs in your community, region or state with middle and high school students. We work closely with existing schools and local organizations to implement relationship skill instruction cost effectively and at scale.
Instructors will receive training and teaching materials, students will learn new skills and knowledge, and you will receive stories of impact plus the knowledge that you have made a difference in the lives of young people – both today and in the future.
