Boys' Clubs of America, New York, NY.
This guide, the culmination of a three year Project TEAM effort by the Boys' Clubs of America, describes numerous strategies for developing an alcohol abuse prevention program. The core of this guide consists of program models developed by the Boys' Club project at seven pilot sites. The models presented cover the following areas: peer leadership, peer consulting, arts and crafts, cultural exploration, media strategy, values clarification, and community service. Specific objectives and activities for developing and implementing each of the models are outlined. Suggestions for starting a prevention program, developing project staff, getting teenagers involved, and working with the program models are presented. Suggestions are also made concerning program objectives and planning, evaluation concepts and techniques, program funding, and publicity. In addition, facts and myths about alcohol and alcohol abuse are discussed and a resource list is provided. (EB)
