A Guidebook for Planning Alcohol Prevention Programs with Black Youth.
Monroe-Scott, Bettina; Mirand, Valetta
This guide, developed to assist black community organizations in starting alcohol abuse prevention programs for black and urban youths, describes community action approaches developed for and tested by the black community in model community alcohol abuse prevention workshops in Chicago, Fort Lauderdale and Philadelphia. The material is organized in five chapters, each beginning with an overview or statement of purpose and bulleted goals and/or knowledge to be obtained. Chapter 1 discusses black history with an emphasis on alcohol use by black Americans. Chapter 2 explores prevention approaches and offers nine alcohol prevention strategies suitable for black adolescents. Chapter 3 presents steps in starting prevention programs, e.g., community mobilization, cosponsorship, networking, grantsmanship and outreach. Chapter 4 addresses evaluation, stressing ways to determine if programs are meeting objectives. Chapter 5 is a resource section listing national, state, and local private and public organizations by name and address as well as available resource materials appropriate for youth prevention programs. The three appendices provide program planning materials (grant proposal outline and grant charts, and needs assessment guidelines and forms); community workshop materials (letters, agenda, feedback forms, worksheets, and overhead projector outlines); and a glossary of terms and a list of references.
