Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $733,928)
The purpose of this study is to contribute to the knowledge and practice pertaining to the application of the peer gatekeeping theory to CVE context by (1) generating additional data and insights on peer gatekeeper training program; and (2) developing tools to facilitate systematic and structured replication and testing of the said training by future researchers.
Specifically, this studys goal is to replicate (pilot) and evaluate WORDEs Peer Gatekeeper Training Program in a new locality, namely Prince Georges County (PGC), Maryland. We also propose to develop a program replication framework (inclusive of a practitioners guidebook) pertaining to the replication process, program evaluation plan as well as a program impact measurement scheme that can guide future efforts by stakeholders and researchers of implementation and evaluation of peer gatekeeper programs in additional localities in the US. ca/ncf
