Youth Leader PPW Programs

Regular price $ 199.00

Youth Leader Prevention Plus Wellness (PPW) Programs, along with PPW Implementer Training for Youth Leaders, provides adolescents and young adults with an opportunity to assume a responsible and active leadership role by providing an evidence-based prevention program to their same or younger-aged peers. 

Training youth and young adults as evidence-based prevention program implementers opens youth to experiencing additional benefits beyond receiving a prevention intervention themselves, including:   

  • Becoming a positive role model,
  • Experiencing providing meaningful service to others,
  • Learning professional responsibilities, and
  • Gaining personal and leadership knowledge, skills and self-confidence. 

This type of youth leadership experience offers young people a unique opportunity to learn and demonstrate evidence-based prevention program implementation and evaluation skills and knowledge as trained prevention providers.  

That is why this strategy is ideal for all young people, including volunteer peer mentors, general youth populations, and high-risk groups of youth and young adults. 

Complex and multi-session evidence-based prevention programs are not feasible interventions for training in youth leadership and would likely not be successfully implemented.   

However, the one-session evidence-based SPORT and InShape Prevention Plus Wellness programs for youth and young adults, as well as the single-session evidence-informed Vaping, Marijuana and Opioid Prevention Plus Wellness programs are ideally suited for youth leadership because of their relative simplicity, ease and brevity of use.  

Youth Leader PPW Program materials include a program script to follow when providing the program to a group of peers as well as a digital download of all program reproducible materials along with PowerPoint slides. 

Program materials are just $199 for a set of programs for 10 youth leaders.   

Youth Leadership Training in Prevention Plus Wellness programs is just two hours in length, and up to 50 youth with adult mentors can participate for just $499:
