Description

BLOOM IT UP
Teen-Driven Outreach & Advocacy

Prevent teen dating abuse.
Safe and healthy relationships for all.


Between 2013 and 2015, BLOOM365 piloted a homegrown, research-based, health education curriculum to educate and activate teens to prevent teen dating abuse and build healthy relationships in three Phoenix area high schools and two middle schools.

Pilot pre-post data was used on 732 students to determine whether participation in the Bloom It Up 7-Dose curriculum resulted in significant and detectable changes. Findings using a pre-post paired change design indicated that Bloom It Up has a significant positive impact on changes in knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, and/or behaviors of young people and is a promising practice model for teen dating abuse prevention and intervention.

In the years that followed the initial pilot study, Bloom It Up grew into a comprehensive 3-Step model, combining outreach education with direct advocacy services for teens who disclose victimization, as well as opportunities for teens to activate their new knowledge and transform it into social good. Since 2016, the 3-Step model has been replicated in an additional seven schools. In addition, two “early adopter” Chapter Affiliates were formed in partnership with the City of Surprise Youth Leadership Council and the City of Maricopa Police Department. In the 2017-2018 school year, a team of 30 Bloom It Up staff, interns and volunteer Peer Advocates will implement the model in 20 high schools and 12 community based youth organizations across Maricopa County, Arizona.

SCALE THE IMPACT: BECOME A TRAINED FACILITATOR

Thanks to the investment of time, talent and resources provided by the BLOOM365 Board of Directors and Social Venture Partners Arizona, BLOOM365 is ready to scale the Bloom It Up impact beyond Maricopa County through a new Certified Facilitator Training Program, held four times a year in our new Blooming Point Center in Phoenix.

If you are interested in partnering with BLOOM365 and teen Peer Advocates to implement the 3-Step Bloom It Up model in your local community, the next 3-day Certified Facilitator Training will be held September 25, 26, and 27, 2017. Please contact us for more information and a Letter of Interest packet.
