Getting Oriented

Here you'll find a summary of what the Sexual Risk Avoidance Education Initiative in New York State is all about!

Educator Responsibilities and Qualifications

This document may not reflect your exact job description, but it will give you an idea of how the New York State Department of Health (SRAE's funder) originally described the position.

Orientation Checklist

ACT for Youth has provided this document to Health Educator Supervisors to help them consider topics to cover in your orientation.

EBP Educator Competencies

This checklist itemizes the areas where you will be expected to demonstrate competency.

Evidence-Based Programs

Evidence-based education is at the core of the SRAE initiative. Much of your effort will be devoted to the implementation of evidence-based programs.

Adult-Supervised Activities

SRAE projects provide educational, recreational, or vocational activities to youth ages 10-13. These developmental opportunities build on young people's strengths.


Implementing Evidence-Based Programs: An Online Training for Educators

All SRAE educators are required to complete the online training "Implementing Evidence-Based Programs." Providers have called it "Great prep for understanding the rationale for EBPs and common issues that arise. Puts us all on the same page." Complete the 6-hour training before you begin programming, then revisit any part of it as you gain experience.

Quality Improvement

Observing EBP Facilitation

There are many skills involved in good program facilitation. To support quality facilitation, supervisors are expected to observe educators and offer feedback twice each year. In addition, an ACT for Youth staff member will visit each provider agency at least once annually to conduct an on-site observation of one of the educators.

Educator Reflection Form

The purpose of this reflection tool is to highlight implementation successes and challenges in order to improve overall program delivery. The tool is designed to assist you in thinking through how a particular cycle is progressing.

Educator Self-Assessment

This tool will help you consider your strengths and challenges as an EBP facilitator.

Youth Satisfaction Survey

A short survey that is completed anonymously by youth participants, this tool can be used to improve implementation of an active EBP cycle. Ideally, it would be administered by the educator twice during a cycle — when about half of the sessions are complete and at the last session. By getting feedback midway, educators can immediately improve program delivery and promote engagement. Getting feedback at the end of the cycle offers an opportunity to improve implementation of future cycles.
