Raising Money for PROSPER at Camels Hump Middle School

THE STORY:

The University of Vermont Extension, Camels Hump Middle School parents, and personnel from Camels Hump Middle School have been collaborating on a research project (Promoting School-community-university Partnerships to Enhance Resilience [PROSPER]) to implement a model which has proven to increase student problem solving and communication abilities, while promoting the success of youth in their communities.

Strengthening Families Program Ages 10-14 is an evidence-based program delivered over seven weeks for sixth grade students and their parents or caregivers. Youth benefit by learning to prepare for their teen years, communicate effectively with their parents, deal with stress and peer pressure, and avoid alcohol and drug problems. Parents and caregivers enhance their parenting skills by learning to set limits, making house rules, encouraging positive behaviors, learning to handle stress and helping their children understand the negative impact of risky behaviors.

Research has shown that youth and participating families show an increase in student attendance, academic achievement, positive school/community attitudes and family communications. Results also indicated that youth are less likely to engage in risky behaviors and other socially harmful activities. The evidence is that for every for every $1 invested in this program, there is a $9.60 return to the community, as youth are more likely to contribute positively to their families and greater community.

Dollars are needed for operational support.
