SOaR in Action


SOaR In Action is a community-based prevention program. It was developed and tested by Dr. Marshall Jones from Penn State's Hershey Medical Center (now retired) and was originally called PALS (Participate And Learn Skills) in prevention literature. The program allows community organizations to set up a delivery model that will assist them in integrating the Social Development Strategy and develop monitoring rubrics and evaluation procedures that will add value into their existing programs. So that in addition to meeting their organization's goals, they can help reduce substance abuse and other problem behaviors.

Current community programs that have applied this framework to their programs are:

Brigham City Fine Arts Center

The Peak Swim School
