School and Community OutreachHow can you market your services to schools and communities? How can you ensure that the school agrees to implement the program with fidelity? CAPP and PREP providers have shared resources below. For additional marketing pieces you can use, see EBPs Go to School.

Preparing for Different Program SettingsMany EBPs were designed for community settings, where timing may be flexible. However, many providers are implementing these programs in classroom settings with rigid timeframes. To maintain fidelity, careful preparation is needed. The tools below may help.
Create an equipment checklistWhat equipment and materials will you need and when will you need them? Save time by developing a checklist that you can share among educators for each program cycle.
Create a curriculum-specific master list of adaptationsBased on the Fidelity Checklist, a master list identifies all of the adaptations you plan to make, including how and why a given activity will be modified. Important reminder: Since your adaptations should reflect your target population and community, you'll need to create your own list. Be sure to send it to ACT for Youth for review. Once approved, the master list will become the starting point for completing your Fidelity Checklist, since many of your adaptations will already be listed.
Adjust for different age groupsSome providers have adjusted EBPs to make them more relevant for an older audience and pregnant/parenting participants.
Include youth with intellectual disabilitiesACT for Youth asked Luca Maurer to develop a guide to assist educators who are implementing BPBR with participants who have learning or intellectual disabilities. This guide and Maurer's more general guidelines are linked below.
Include LGBTQ youthThe CAPP and PREP LGBTQ work group offers a sample adaptation checklist, role plays, and additional resources for a BPBR implementation. These adaptations have been reviewed and approved by Konstance McCaffree, one of the developers of BPBR. Recommendations for implementing an EBP with LGBTQ youth are relevant for many programs. Our thanks go to the work group, which included staff from Hetrick Martin Institute, LIGALY, Mount Sinai, Planned Parenthood of Nassau County, Lutheran Family Health Center, Reach CNY, and ACT for Youth.
Create visuals to support curriculum contentCondom Step Cards: If documented school policies prohibit the condom demonstration, in some districts you may be able to use these Condom Step Cards. The steps can be printed out on card stock and posted as you review each step, or used as handouts. Text from Be Proud Be Responsible (2006).

Posters: Posters provided in the BPBR and MPC program kit are fairly small and hard to read. ACT for Youth has created color slides of each poster and enhanced their design. These slides can be downloaded and enlarged.
