SPORT PPW is a quick and easy to use positive youth development program for prevention and health professionals and parents who want to prevent substance use and promote healthy lifestyle behaviors and positive identities of youth.  

SPORT PPW has undergone rigorous research evaluating its effectiveness for preventing youth substance use and increasing healthy habits.  It is listed as an evidence-based program on the National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices (NREPP), Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development and other evidence-based registries.  Furthermore, it utilizes an evidence-based practices screening and brief intervention format recognized by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). 

SPORT PPW is the only single-session substance use prevention program designed to increase health-enhancing behaviors including physical activity, sports participation, healthy eating, getting adequate sleep, and practicing stress control.  It can be implemented in any setting including school, community, health care, sports, recreation, juvenile justice, home, and others. 

SPORT PPW is founded on the Behavior-Image Model (BIM), a positive youth development-related framework that targets naturally motivating positive peer and desired future images to increase motivation for change and multiple health behavior goal setting to increase self-regulation skills and self-efficacy of participants.  

SPORT PPW is highly flexible and can be used as a stand-alone intervention, or as an add-on component to other prevention, health, sports, fitness, recreation, education, intervention, or treatment programs.  While it was created as a universal prevention intervention, organizations across the US and abroad use it as a selective and indicated prevention program for high-risk populations.
