PROmoting School-community-university Partnerships to Enhance Resilience

GO PROSPER survey, round 1

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.

Problem awareness

Current interest, attitude, demands, and commitment concerning prevention programming targeting youth and families, as well as existing obstacles to adopting such programming by the Cooperative Extension System. State level presumes programming implemented state-wide, while community level assumes programming selected by particular community to meet specific needs.

How serious are each of the following problems for communities in your state?

Decision-making about programming

Practices for decisions related to program selection.

Implementation of evidence-based programs

Current use of evidence-based programs by the Cooperative Extension System and factors that influence decisions about adopting new Evidence-Based Programs. The term evidence-based refers to programs based on sound theory that have been rigorously evaluated (e.g., compared with a control group) and proven to produce long-term positive effects in reducing substance use, delinquency or other youth problems.

Existing program evaluation practices

Practices of program quality assurance and evaluation currently employed by the Cooperative Extension System.

Existing program evaluation practices

Existing partnerships with schools

Partnerships and partnership stability between Extension and the school system.
