ACT for Youth

For CAPP and PREP Educators

CAPP and PREP educators are charged with facilitating evidence-based programs (EBPs) in adolescent sexual health. On this page, ACT for Youth links to resources to help you deliver these programs with quality.

Getting Started

EBP Educator Competencies (Word)
This checklist itemizes the areas where you will be expected to demonstrate competency.

Educator Self-Assessment (Word)
This tool will help you consider your strengths and challenges as an EBP facilitator.

Online Reporting System
This page provides an overview of the online reporting system (ORS), including a link to the ORS portal.

CAPP Component Two
Some CAPP providers are funded to offer youth development opportunities under CAPP Component Two. On this page, you'll find a description of the grant requirements as well as best practices. Note that some of these programs will be evaluated using surveys. Information for these surveys is on the CAPP Component Two page.


Implementing Evidence-Based Programs: An Online Training for Educators
All CAPP and PREP educators are required to complete the online training "Implementing Evidence-Based Programs." This training was built specifically for you! Providers have called it "Great prep for understanding the rationale for EBPs and common issues that arise. Puts us all on the same page." Complete the 6-hour training before you begin programming, then revisit any part of it as you gain experience. Request a log-in for Implementing Evidence-Based Programs.

Quality Improvement

Observation Protocols and Tools
All educators will be observed by supervisors, and may be observed by ACT for Youth. On this page you'll find the tools that may be used during an observation, as well as a tool for creating an improvement plan.

Educator Reflection Form (Word)
The purpose of this reflection tool is to highlight implementation successes and challenges in order to improve overall program delivery. The tool is designed to assist you in thinking through how a particular cycle is progressing.

Youth Satisfaction Survey (Word)
A short survey that is completed anonymously by youth participants, this tool can be used to improve implementation of an active EBP cycle. Ideally, it would be administered by the educator twice in a cycle -- when about half of the sessions are complete and at the last session. By getting feedback midway, educators can immediately improve program delivery and promote engagement. Getting feedback at the end of the cycle offers an opportunity to improve implementation of future cycles.
