Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2004, $247,369)

The Sexual Abuse Free Environment for Teens Program (SAFE-T) is a comprehensive, research-based curriculum that is based on the belief that child sexual abuse is preventable and that individuals, families, institutions and communities have a role in prevention.
SAFE-T actively involves students in developing skills related to empathy, self-esteem, self-awareness, trust and accountability from three perspectives victim, offender and bystander. The curriculum is designed to teach students to recognize abusive actions, make changes in abusive behavior, create positive changes in peer culture, develop healthy relationships with peers and parents/trusted adults, and to understand the risks of substance abuse.
The goal of this project is to expand the SAFE-T Program to more students, parents, faculty and administrators in Vermont's middle schools, and to measure outcomes through pre and post tests, focus groups and six and twelve-month follow-up phone interviews.
