Street Style Positive™
Award-Winning StreetPositive.com®, a division of 4Positive Knowledge (1997), was originally established in 1999 to promote child safety among elementary school students.
By 2003, both StreetPositive.com and Street Style Positive™ had evolved into notable ventures advocating various prevention and intervention campaigns among parents and youth.
The first campaign addressed youth taking responsibility for their decisions and choices. The second campaign addressed parents taking responsibility for their children.
By 2004, StreetPositive.com had begun receiving a significant number of inquiries by parents, educators and community leaders interested in Street Style Positive™ partnerships to produce and promote events for the positive in their local areas.
Today, the term Street Style Positive™ describes a distinct behavior among young people who are about handling their business, choosing not to get “caught up” and maintaining respect from their peers for not doing so.
