PROmoting School-community-university Partnerships to Enhance Resilience
How PROSPER Works
Through the Cooperative Extension System, PROSPER gives community teams access to the latest university research. These teams work with schools to introduce programs that support the positive development of middle school aged youth and their families. PROSPER community teams receive support to help keep the program going with the same level of quality.
Organizational Structure for the Delivery System
The national PROSPER Partnership Network includes staff from Penn State and Iowa State Universities that support each State Partnership.
