COMMUNITY MATTERS

Rating: 4.73 stars   11 reviews

Issues: Children & Youth, Education, Bullying

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.
