Diffusing Youth-Based Participatory Action Research for Prevention Model

The Diffusing Youth-Based Participatory Action Research for Prevention project piloted and created an abbreviated curriculum and implementation manual designed for youth-serving organizations. This project explored how ICR's theory-driven substance abuse prevention model, which uses a participatory action research (PAR) training process as the basis for youth risk-prevention and education through skill-building, empowerment and problem-solving, can be shortened and adapted for use by youth workers in different settings and with different urban populations.
