BABES combines puppets, stories, and discussions designed to help school children develop positive living skills. Volunteers bring the 6-week prevention program to K-3rd-grade students in public and parochial schools.

Following an orientation by BABES Coordinator, volunteers are paired and scheduled into area schools. Scripted lessons, "stories" are told to the children by the 7 colorful puppets and the stories are followed by lively discussions. Each lesson builds on skills learned or topics discussed in the previous lesson. These stories, adapted to current language and times have been presented since the mid-'80s. In 2005, a new curriculum was added to be presented strictly to 3rd graders. This new curriculum builds on the foundations of the original set of stories and brings additional skills to the 3rd graders.
