The Dibble Institute is pleased to announce that Relationship Smarts PLUS has won the prestigious 2014 Revere Award for Distinguished Achievement in the supplementary life skills and character education.

Relationship Smarts PLUS was created to help teens learn, often for the first time, how to make wise choices about relationships, dating, partners, sex, and more.

2013 Annual Report

The Dibble Institute’s materials are currently used in over 42 states. We estimate that they touch over 110,000 young people a year. As the reputation of our products and their outcomes grow, so does the demand for our materials.
Our relationship skills programs lead to better results in pregnancy prevention, violence reduction, parenting, re-entry, workforce development, and college entry programs. See the report here.
