Shared Resources

On this page, we link to tools that CAPP and PREP providers have offered to share with their colleagues, as well as those contributed by ACT for Youth. Each one is designed to help you implement programs with fidelity and quality. Some of these tools can be used as they are; most you will need to modify for your own program.

If you have designed any visuals, handouts, or tools that you are willing to share with the CAPP and PREP community, please send them to Jutta: jd81@cornell.edu

School and Community Outreach

How 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.

Outreach to Schools

Our thanks go to Hudson Headwaters Health Network for sharing the excellent tools they developed for outreach to schools.

Community Outreach

In this nicely designed community outreach flyer, local statistics lead into the case for comprehensive sex education. County rank is highlighted, underscoring the need in Chemung County. Thanks go to Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes.

Programming Packages

This program request form facilitates the process of scheduling EBPs and additional programming as a package. Thanks to Mothers and Babies Perinatal Network for sharing this strategy.

Getting Feedback

The Research Foundation for SUNY at Stony Brook gathers feedback from host sites to help evaluate EBP educators. We thank them for sharing the survey, which is usually completed by school teachers who have observed the EBP instructor in a classroom setting.

Preparing for Different Program Settings

Many 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.

Adjust program modules to classroom periods

When certain EBPs are implemented in a classroom setting, module lengths don't match the classroom period lengths. In this example, we show how activities can be arranged without impacting fidelity in order to fit Be Proud Be Responsible into a) 40-minute classroom periods or b) 80-minute classroom periods.

Create an equipment checklist

What 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.

Intentional Adaptations

Most EBPs need to be enhanced to better match the target population or update factual information. Below we link to tools for managing and standardizing adaptations, as well as resources that support curriculum content.

Create a curriculum-specific master list of adaptations

Based 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 groups

Some providers have adjusted EBPs to make them more relevant for an older audience and pregnant/parenting participants.

Include youth with intellectual disabilities

ACT 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 youth

The 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 content

Condom 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).

Game Show: The YWCA of Jamestown developed this "game show" as an adaptation for BPBR 2016 Module 1, Activity D: Discussing HIV and AIDS. This adaptation provides the same information in a more interactive way.

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.
