Quabbin Mediation Incorporated will use grant funds to pilot Training Active Bystanders (TAB) in collaboration with local police departments and school districts. TAB, an innovative curriculum, aims to prevent victimization and violence by reducing anti-social behaviors and increasing pro-social skills, behaviors and attitudes. Quabbin Mediation will field test the 12-hour TAB curriculum and train 4 police officers, 20 students, and 4 teachers how to teach TAB. Training teams of students partnered with a police officer, will teach TAB to 350 middle and high school students in their classrooms. An educational evaluator will compare results against an internal control group and two outside control schools. The grantee will report performances measures to OJJDP, including the number and percent of youth who successfully complete program requirements, reoffend, and exhibit a decrease in antisocial behavior.
