Shared Resources

On this page, we link to tools that CAPP and PREP providers have offered to share with their colleagues, as well as those contributed by ACT for Youth. Each one is designed to help you implement programs with fidelity and quality. Some of these tools can be used as they are; most you will need to modify for your own program.

If you have designed any visuals, handouts, or tools that you are willing to share with the CAPP and PREP community, please send them to Jutta:


Referrals in the CAPP and PREP initiatives are more than just handing a young person a brochure about services. The referral process is described in the document below, where you'll also find a form to help you document the process.

School and Community Outreach

How can you market your services to schools and communities? How can you ensure that the school agrees to implement the program with fidelity? CAPP and PREP providers have shared resources below. For additional marketing pieces you can use, see EBPs Go to School.

Program Summaries

These summaries of BPBR and MPC can be used as handouts to explain what each curriculum covers. Similar handouts could be designed for other EBPs.

Community Outreach

In this nicely designed community outreach flyer, local statistics lead into the case for comprehensive sex education. County rank is highlighted, underscoring the need in Chemung County. Thanks go to Planned Parenthood of the Southern Finger Lakes.

Infographics may help you describe the impact of your efforts within a given community. In this Supervisor Learning Collaborative Meeting, Jutta describes some of the messages you might want to highlight using infographics. ACT for Youth can help you create similar graphics using your own data.

Programming Packages

This program request form facilitates the process of scheduling EBPs and additional programming as a package. Thanks to Mothers and Babies Perinatal Network for sharing this strategy.

Getting Feedback

The Research Foundation for SUNY at Stony Brook gathers feedback from host sites to help evaluate EBP educators. We thank them for sharing the survey, which is usually completed by school teachers who have observed the EBP instructor in a classroom setting.

Preparing for Different Program Settings

Many EBPs were designed for community settings, where timing may be flexible. However, many providers are implementing these programs in classroom settings with rigid timeframes. To maintain fidelity, careful preparation is needed. The tools below may help.

Adjust program modules to classroom periods

When certain EBPs are implemented in a classroom setting, module lengths don't match the classroom period lengths. In this example, we show how activities can be arranged without impacting fidelity in order to fit Be Proud Be Responsible into a) 40-minute classroom periods or b) 80-minute classroom periods.

Create an equipment checklist

What equipment and materials will you need and when will you need them? Save time by developing a checklist that you can share among educators for each program cycle.

Youth Peer Educators

For the purposes of CAPP and PREP, youth peer educators are high school or college students or young adults who voluntarily participate in providing program services.

Intentional Adaptations

Most EBPs need to be enhanced to better match the target population or update factual information. Below we link to tools for managing and standardizing adaptations, as well as resources that support curriculum content.

Create a curriculum-specific master list of adaptations

Based on the Fidelity Checklist, a master list identifies all of the adaptations you plan to make, including how and why a given activity will be modified. Important reminder: Since your adaptations should reflect your target population and community, you'll need to create your own list. Be sure to send it to ACT for Youth for review. Once approved, the master list will become the starting point for documenting adaptations in the ORS, since many of your adaptations will already be listed.

Update medical information

Use the resources below to add language about PrEP and PEP.

Adjust for different age groups

Some providers have adjusted EBPs to make them more relevant for an older audience and pregnant/parenting participants.

Adjust for Spanish-speaking audiences

Planned Parenthood of Nassau County created PowerPoint slides in Spanish to facilitate implementation of BPBR (2016) to predominantly Spanish-speaking audiences. The slides include instructions for activities, key words, and posters. They have also revised and translated the Myth or Fact activity.

Include youth with intellectual disabilities

ACT for Youth asked Luca Maurer to develop a guide to assist educators who are implementing BPBR with participants who have learning or intellectual disabilities. This guide and Maurer's more general guidelines are linked below.

Include LGBTQ youth

Use inclusive language: LIGALY staff developed a master list of adaptations for Be Proud Be Responsible (2016) that clearly documents how to modify language to be inclusive for LGBTQ youth. Use this master list to guide changes to language. Important note: when reporting in the ORS, you do not have to list each change in the detail you see in this master list. Instead, just make a note in the comment section that you are using LGBTQ-inclusive language.

LIGALY Sample Master List, LGBTQ-Inclusive Language (Word)

Strategies and principles to make programming LGBTQ inclusive: Below are suggestions and recommendations from a past CAPP work group, as well as a recording and slides from a webinar on gender-expansive education presented by Julia Stern of Hetrick-Martin Institute. Planned Parenthood of Nassau County has also shared their more inclusive "Myth or Fact" activity for BPBR 2016.

Create visuals to support curriculum content

PowerPoint slides: Many CAPP and PREP providers are using PowerPoint slides to support implementation of BPBR or MPC. We're seeing a lot of positive uses of PowerPoint, but also some uses that concern us. Your TA team brainstormed a few DOs and DON'Ts for your consideration.

Tip Sheet: Use Your PowerPoints for Good, Not Evil

Condom Step Cards: If documented school policies prohibit the condom demonstration, in some districts you may be able to use these Condom Step Cards. The steps can be printed out on card stock and posted as you review each step, or used as handouts. Text from Be Proud Be Responsible (2006).

Game Show: The YWCA of Jamestown developed this "game show" as an adaptation for BPBR 2016 Module 1, Activity D: Discussing HIV and AIDS. This adaptation provides the same information in a more interactive way.

Posters: Posters provided in the BPBR and MPC program kit are fairly small and hard to read. ACT for Youth has created color slides of each poster and enhanced their design. These slides can be downloaded and enlarged.
