PROmoting School-community-university Partnerships to Enhance Resilience
This report was prepared for the Cooperative Extension System of the state of Vermont. In it you will find information from the seven Extension Systems that are taking part in the “Grand Opportunity” (GO) PROSPER Expansion project funded by the National Institute on Drug Abuse. It is being conducted by researchers at the Partnerships in Prevention Science Institute at Iowa State University, in collaboration with Extension personnel and researchers at Pennsylvania State University’s Prevention Research Institute.
Data were collected using a web-based survey distributed to Extension Administrators and all Extension employees associated with the 4-H and Family Program areas. Included in this report are the aggregated responses obtained from Vermont and from all seven participating states (including Vermont called “All GO States” in the tables and figures).
Results are based on responses from the 726 participating Extension employees in the seven states (a response rate of 63%), including 20 (a 91% response rate) from Vermont.
