Too Good for Violence (TGFV) is a classroom based violence prevention and character education program designed to enhance pro social behaviors and skill and improve protective factors related to conflict and violence. Program can be implemented in school or community settings.


TGFV has a developmentally appropriate curriculum for each grade level through 8th grade, with a separate high school curriculum for students in grades 9 through 12. The K-5 curricula each include seven weekly, 30- to 60-minute lessons, and the curricula for grades 6-8 each include nine weekly, 30- to 45-minute lessons. The high school curriculum includes 14 weekly, 1-hour lessons, plus 12 optional, 1- hour “infusion” lessons designed to incorporate and reinforce skills taught in the core curriculum through academic infusion in various subject areas. Trained teachers, counselors, and prevention specialists deliver the program. The research presented in this review involved only students in the 3rd grade.


Too Good for Violence is a companion program to Too Good for Drugs (TGFD). At the high school level, the programs are combined in one volume under the name Too Good for Drugs & Violence High School.
