COMMUNITY MATTERS

Rating: 4.73 stars   11 reviews

Issues:

Location: PO Box 14816 Santa Rosa CA 95402 USA

Mission: To collaborate with schools and communities in creating safe and inclusive environments where all youth and adults thrive.
Results: Our programs and services reduce bullying and violence, positively affecting attendance as well as academic achievement, and help young people develop into capable, connected and contributing members of society. A multi-year evaluation conducted in partnership with Texas State University, San Marcos and the University of Georgia, Athens, and completed in 2011 found several statistically significant outcomes: - Increased rates of intervention in bullying incidents by male Ambassadors; - Improved school climate among friends of Ambassadors, who also reported increased rates of intervention in bullying incidents by their peers; - Suspension rates averaged 33% lower than pre-SSA rates at schools that implemented the program as designed, while rates at demographically matched control schools rose 10% during the same years.

Community Reviews

Rating: 5 stars  

After working in the risk management field for the past 25 years I find it highly unusual to find an organization like Community Matters that is so in-tune with the needs of our public schools. What is refreshing is that the prevention philosophy held by the organization is applyed with such accuracy and practicality. Furthermore, the level of service from top to bottom has been extreemly professional. I would highly recommned that Community Matters be incorporated into any distircts strategic risk planning.
