PROSPER is a model for bringing evidence-based prevention programs to schools and communities with the goal of strengthening families, building youth skills, and reducing youth substance use as well as other problem behaviors.
PROSPER (PROmoting School-community-university Partnerships to Enhance Resilience) programs are led by community teams made up of representatives from Penn State Extension, school district personnel, representatives from community service agencies, parents, youth, and other community members.

February 1, 2013It is hard to believe that I am a senior in high school, and in just five months, I will be sitting at my graduation. As I look back on all the things I did during my years at Salisbury Township School District, I especially think about my role as a youth member of the PROSPER team and my participation in PROSPER programs.
