dc.description.abstractSubstance abuse among school aged individuals is associated with a number of problems including promiscuity, school attendance, academic success, and legal problems. The National 4-H Council and Georgia 4-H attempted to present a substance abuse educational program, called Health Rocks!, during 2010 to an audience primarily composed of middle school youth. Statistically significant differences were found in attitudes and knowledge level of these youth from a post curriculum exposure standpoint compared to pre curriculum exposure. Though the data analysis revealed significant increases, it was recommended that program developers modify the questionnaire by utilizing questions that call upon a more advanced level of knowledge to truly measure changes in participants as well as eliminate some of the potential for measurement error.
