SPIRIT Program

For the past 15 years, Community Partnership has coordinated the School-based Prevention, Intervention, and Resource Initiative (SPIRIT) in collaboration with the Carthage School District, and most recently, Greenwood Laboratory School. This program implements PeaceBuilders and Too Good for Drugs curricula, both best practice substance use prevention programs.

Since its inception, SPIRIT outcomes have included decreases in substance use and school disciplinary incidents by Carthage and Greenwood students, while improving their bonding to the school district.
