Promoting School-community-university Partnerships to Enhance Resilience

Camels Hump, in partnership with UVM Extension, will be undertaking an exciting new family education program that will be offered this Spring here at Camels Hump. PROSPER (Promoting School-community-universityPartnerships to Enhance Resilience) is a research project that connects local communities and their universities in implementing a model which has proven to increase student problem solving and communication abilities, while promoting the success of youth in their communities.

Strengthening Families Program Ages 10-14 is an evidence-based program delivered over seven weeks for sixth grade students and their parents or caregivers. Youth benefit by learning to prepare for their teen years, communicate effectively with their parents, deal with stress and peer pressure, and avoid alcohol and drug problems. Parents and caregivers enhance their parenting skills by learning to set limits, making house rules, encouraging positive behaviors, learning to handle stress and helping their children understand the negative impact of risky behaviors.

We are very excited about this program and our partnership with UVM Extension. In the coming weeks all sixth-grade families will be receiving further information regarding the specifics of the program along with an invitation to participate. As this is our inaugural year participation will be limited to only twelve (12) families.
