AHA! is a project of the Family Therapy Institute of Santa Barbara and is dedicated to the development of character, imagination, emotional intelligence, and social conscience in teenagers. Through an innovative curriculum focusing on self-expression, team-building, empathy training, and diversity appreciation (eracism), AHA! helps teens learn to set goals, stop bullying, support their peers, and serve the community. AHA! also helps teens to become more resilient, to establish positive friendships and family relationships, and to develop a deeper sense of personal integrity and purposeful living.
