The program utilizes active skill-based teaching methods with multiple sessions throughout the school year with the same group of students through middle school and on to high school. Sunrise Prevention Programming [ Groups include females and males age from multiple racial and ethnic groups as well as multiple cultural backgrounds. [ Ideally, content is constructed with input from students, teachers, staff, and family members to ensure that the programming provided is what will best serve the needs of the school community.

Lori, age 17 10 YCAT Self Evaluation Summer Youth Leadership Institute (SYLI) Summer Youth Leadership Institute Collaboration with: Sunrise Saint Leo University FCADV District School Board of Pasco County With support from local businesses Evaluating Youth Empowerment / Leadership SYLI Student Facilitators Inviting other centers 1 Minute Please Winners! Presenting their School Plan Parent & Community Involvement Graduation! 12 Involving Community Leaders Social Media WEDU Award Why evaluate? Two main questions to answer: 1.) Does it work? O Did the program change what you said it would change? O OUTCOME 2.) How does it work? O Is the program being implemented as planned? O PROCESS SYLI Evaluation Findings IniWal findings suggest that the SYLI has potenwal in improving leadership skills, empowerment skills with peers, and asserwveness skills for the prevenwon of violence in High School students. The use of peer co- facilitators may be a unique and helpful technique in improving all students skills and comfort levels. Youth suggested that in the future, the program uwlize more diverse adults and those not known to youth to create larger improvements in skills with adults. Why establish healthy youth-adult partnerships? Youth-targeted programs that involve youth in the program design, implementation, and evaluation stages are inclined toward increased relevancy and effectiveness and produce positive outcomes for programs. By involving youth, the program will be more in-touch with the unique characteristics of the target group and will more likely appeal to and speak to that population. 13 TDVAM Respect Week Next Steps Putting young people on our staff Identify funding for stipends for YCAT to work on projects Provide opportunities for planning and implementing an event and for speaking to peers and adult leaders Encourage critical reflection on current policies concerning bullying, sexual harassment, sexual assault, and dating violence Teens Helping Teens Rely on peers for advice and information If trapped in an abusive relationship, 73% of teens said they would turn to a friend for help (National Youth Violence Prevention Resource Center) Supporting current and future leadership of prevention efforts How to Mobilize Youth How to Mobilize Youth sk elieve reate 14 Ask Believe What would you like to do?
