Keeping Up with the Joneses - Anamosa Community School District Grant to Reduce Alcohol Abuse

The Anamosa Community School District was awarded funding for the Keeping Up with the Joneses project funded by the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools through the Grants to Reduce Alcohol Abuse Program. The project supports prevention programming to all 6th through 12th grade youth in the 4 school districts in Jones County. The Consortium is conducting a process and outcome evaluation to determine the degree of success in achieving project goals. The goals of the project are to:

  1. Reduce underage alcohol use and binge drinking by the youth targeted by the prevention programs,
  2. Increase the number of targeted youth who disapprove of alcohol abuse,
  3. Increase the number of targeted youth who believe alcohol is harmful to their health,
  4. Demonstrate comprehensive, county-wide alcohol prevention system change,
  5. Demonstrate local capacity to implement and sustain research-based prevention programs.

This project was completed July 1, 2008.
