Request for Proposals (RFP)

TITLE: Young Men?s Safe Choices Vermont Evaluation Project

SPONSORS: Project Safe Choices and the Anti-Violence Partnership at  
the University of Vermont

SYNOPSIS:  The co-sponsors of this project are collaborating through  
the Vermont Approach: A Strategic Plan for Comprehensive,  
Collaborative Sexual Violence Prevention in Vermont. The Vermont  
Approach is a five year plan (2006-2010) for significantly reducing  
sexual violence in Vermont. The approach is aimed at transforming  
those aspects of culture that produce, take for granted and exacerbate  
sexual and related forms of violence and degradation. It is being  
implemented through seven strategies according to designated  
timelines: (a) statewide leadership, (b) community development, (c)  
media change, (d) state and local institutional capacity building, (e)  
education, (d) research & development, and (e) resource development.

Project Safe Choices: Challenging Young Men's Violence (PSC) offers  
Violence Intervention Groups for young men ages 13-17 with histories  
of abusive or violent behaviors, and Education and Prevention Support  
for middle and high school students, teachers and administrators, and  
other service providers who work with young adults. Project Safe  
Choices has a clearly defined approach that has been adapted for  
suitability with youth from the nationally recognized adult model  
employed by the Domestic Abuse Education Project, at Spectrum Youth  
and Family Services. Both projects are members of the local domestic  
violence task force and the statewide Anti-Violence Partnership.

The Anti-Violence Partnership: A Community Collaboration at the  
University of Vermont (AVP) comprises multiple universities, agencies  
and citizens in Vermont who share a commitment to the creation of a  
safe, just, and civil society. The AVP supports and sustains  
collaborative, comprehensive approaches within the community and the  
world to understand and change the existence and acceptance of  
violence and work towards its prevention and elimination. It promotes,  
protects, and enhances the quality of life of those victimized by a  
culture of violence. The Partnership holds two open business and  
program meetings a year, provides technical assistance, and sponsors  
collaborative research and development projects, such as the Vermont  
Approach.

OBJECTIVES: To determine the current approaches used in Vermont with

services.

publicizing, and facilitation, as well as inquiry design,  
implementation and reporting. The event should be organized as an  
innovative approach to evaluating and coordinating statewide community  
responses to young men?s violence and the ideas and expectations that  
perpetuate it. It should consider the PSC model as one approach that  
is specific to the prevention of young men?s violence. It should  
engage individuals in the inquiry who provide services to young men  
with histories of abuse and violence and those who need such services.

middle and high school teachers and administrators, and agency youth  
workers and administrators) and geographically diverse communities
