West Virginia/Iowa: PROSPER

Brief Site Description: 
The joint West Virginia University and Iowa State University CYFAR Sustainable Communities Project implements the "PROmoting School-community-university Partnerships to Enhance Resilience" Model (PROSPER) in two West Virginia communities and two new Iowa communities. The PROSPER community engagement system uses evidence-based programs with middle school aged youth (ages 11-13) and their families. PROSPER has been scientifically proven effective with increased positive outcomes for high-risk populations.
