Curricula

Uproot Abuse in a Generation

 

BringLove365 curricula consist of research-based, evidence informed, and teen relevant lessons to enhance the confidence, skills and knowledge of students to build safe and healthy relationships, free of abuse and violence. Lessons, called "doses," are delivered in-person and online in schools and community settings by trained BLOOM365 Advocates or certified facilitators from member schools and organizations across the U.S. 

Each lesson, or "dose," is driven by measurable objectives that align with the core standards for health education. Upon completing the interactive curriculum, youth, teens and young adults who have experienced, witnessed or perpetrated victimization know where to get help and how to help a friend. Ongoing advocacy, counseling and peer support services are available to all 13-24 year old youth impacted by abuse online. In person wrap around services are also available in select partner school and community based sites.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you implement the curriculum?


Our 7-Dose research based and core standards aligned curriculum for high school students is usually implemented over the course of seven consecutive school days in the Fall and Spring semesters. We start on a Monday and end on the following Tuesday and typically implement in ALL health or other relevant classes. Due to COVID-19 we are currently hosting all sessions in our virtual classroom. It can be made accessible to all your students through their own technology or live streamed to an in-person class. Please contact us for more information. Monday: Dose 1 Defining Teen Relationships: Caring or Controlling? Tuesday: Dose 2 Recognizing & Responding: Red Flags, Where/How to Get Help & How to Help a Friend Wednesday: Dose 3 Root Causes: Gender Stereotypes; Norms v. Exceptions Thursday: Dose 4 Root Causes: Media, Peer & Community Influences Friday: Dose 5 Root Solutions: Self-Esteem & Healthy Relationships Monday: Dose 6 Cultivating Root Solutions: The 3 C’s Communication, Conflict Resolution, & Consent Tuesday: Dose 7 Root Solutions: Upstanders for Social Change & The 4'D's of Bystander Intervention If our staffing schedule permits, we may be able to flex the schedule to accommodate days off for testing, class trips, etc. Schedule a Session >




Is there a cost?


In public school communities where grants and other fundraising resources have been secured to implement the education (step 1) and advocacy (step 2) services, the BringLove365 program is implemented at no cost to the school. When funding is unavailable, the cost to implement the multi-dose education and two weeks of on-site follow-up mobile advocacy services is $35 per student for 1-100 students and $10 for each additional student over the first 100. So, if funding was not secured to implement BringLove365 at your school and you want 250 students to go through the program in the Fall, the cost for the curriculum delivery, supplies, travel, etc. PLUS two weeks of follow-up drop in advocacy services is: 100 x $35=$3,500 150 x $10=$1,500 TOTAL $5,000 Talk to us about cost or scheduling >




How do you measure impact and can the student's work be graded?


Each dose, or lesson, is driven by measurable objectives that align with the core standards for health education. Upon completing the interactive curriculum, teens who have experienced, witnessed or perpetrated victimization know where to get help and how to help a friend, as well as have access to ongoing direct service advocacy, counseling and peer to peer support. The impact realized by our multi-dose education curricula is measured in five ways: Pre/Post Survey: Administered by a trained bloom365 evaluation intern or staff advocate one week prior to delivery and two weeks after, our 10 minute pre/post survey measures changes in knowledge, attitudes, motivations to seek help and the effect of Bloom It Up on bystander intervention. The survey data is collected through handheld clickers. In-Dose Perception v. Reality and Capacity Assessments Student Feedback card data (likert scale and anecdotal) Elephant in the Room cards Workbook and creative project completion (these activities can be graded)

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

— Name, Title

"After learning the statistics on Teen Dating Abuse on the first day of my 7-Doses training, I had a bittersweet realization that I was not alone. Thus, it has been the hallmark of my education, activism, and advocacy in High School and with bloom365. bloom365 has filled me with hope that future generations will have healthy role models to guide and support them throughout their decisions within all types of relationships. I also am excited for the day when victims of teen dating abuse no longer feel alone. Furthermore, as a friend, girlfriend, future doctor, and future mother I know the knowledge I have gained will continue to be utilized throughout my lifetime."
