The SPF Partnerships for Success (PFS) project aimed to reduce problems related to underage drinking by preventing the onset and reducing underage drinking among Nebraskans aged 12 to 20. The focus was on targeted sub-populations based on need, established through protective and risk factor indicators. In addition, the project focused on the importance of equity by addressing identified issues related to race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation status. Using the SPF, this goal was achieved through careful planning, strategic implementation, and effective evaluation.
The University of Nebraska-Lincoln Social & Behavioral Sciences Research Consortium was utilized to conduct the evaluation. Mindy Anderson-Knott, a certified evaluator, lead the PFS evaluation. The evaluation assessed outcomes of Nebraska’s Strategic Prevention Framework - Partnerships for Success (SPF-PFS) project to assess the project in meeting its goals and objectives. These are the SPF-PFS evaluation website and helpful links will be posted here throughout the duration of the project.
