The purpose of this project is to design a school based prevention program at Joseph Le Conte Middle School in Los Angeles County, identify a potential funding source, and write a grant to develop a program for youth who are using or at risk for using drugs and alcohol. Research indicates that individual circumstances such as individual, peer, family, school, and community domains can have serious influences on adolescents' decision to use. Studies on prevention programs in schools that focus on these domains and provide education about the harmful effects of drugs and alcohol prevent unfavorable consequences. The proposed program works toward teaching youth skills to boost resiliency and personal control to better cope with challenges in a healthy and more positive way.
