The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to fund the implementation of the Youth Message Development (YMD) program for all sixth and eighth grade students in Santa Ana, California.
Marijuana is the most commonly used illicit substance in the United States. Research indicates that use of marijuana by adolescents can lead to negative neurological and cognitive consequences. The goals of the proposed program are to delay or deter marijuana use among youth in the Santa Ana Unified School District by increasing their media-literacy and criticalthinking skills when faced with pro-marijuana advertisements and messages. If funded, this program would help youth in Santa Ana increase their knowledge of advertisement techniques and develop essential skills that may protect them from the dangers that early initiation of marijuana can pose. Actual submission of and/or funding of this grant proposal was not required for successful completion of this project.
