Fulfill The Dream, Madison

This chapter initially started out with only four classes in a local middle school. However, after the effectiveness of the program was evaluated : increased G.P.A, increased attendance, and a decrease in behavior issues, the program became school wide. The program was implemented during the life skills class as part of a Social and Emotional Curriculum initiative by the district.

The program was also implemented in both high school and elementary classes throughout the city. Currently a board of teachers are helping to create an age appropriate curriculum for those in elementary school. Discussions are taking place which are securing the district wide piloting of the curriculum in all five high schools which will be accompanied by a longitudinal study with Purdue University. More to come on this in the near future!
