Teams - Partners

In Pennsylvania, PROSPER is a partnership among Penn State Extension, the Penn State Prevention Research Center, and local school districts and community volunteers.

PROSPER Community Teams are small and strategic and have a specific leadership and membership composition.

Prevention Coordinators are traditionally State Extension Specialists from within the Families or Youth Development/4-H program areas. In order to serve as the Community Team's "coach," these individuals have expertise in a variety of areas.

The State Management Team includes both Extension Faculty and University-based researchers that have experience with large-scale prevention or positive youth development programming efforts and/or evaluation projects.
