Teens in Action: In Pursuit of Peace Curriculum. Final Evaluation Report.
Powers, Stephen; Price-Johnson, Connie
The purpose of this final report is to provide a description and evaluation to the Camp Fire Greater Arizona Council of the results of Teens in Action: In Pursuit of Peace Curriculum delinquency prevention program. A total of 94 youths in grades 6 through 12 participated in the program in the spring of 2002 at four sites in Chandler. The Student Outcome Survey was used to assess the Chandler programs impact on eight key areas on 94 youths. The purpose was to determine if there were gains in the direction of the program. Overall, when all of the participants' results were examined, they showed positive gains, and evidence of the positive effects of the program in all eight areas of the program. These results are presented for all 94 youths combined. Open-ended responses showed that after participating in the program the youth expressed themselves with more concrete and realistic terms when they described ways to resolve conflict between two people. In addition when the youth were asked to describe ways to decrease violence, they were able to generate more ideas for promoting peace and peaceful attitudes. Four appendixes include a verbatim listing of all written responses; the In Pursuit of Peace curriculum; and Student Outcome Survey pre- and post-surveys. (GCP)
