Since 1985, Project Community, Inc. (formerly Nurses Network of America) has developed easy-to-understand community health programs using innovative teaching strategies, and provided them at little or no cost. Over the course of our 32-year history, we have demonstrated our commitment to applying evidence-based scientific research and methods to update our programs to serve the evolving needs of communities.
Project REWIND I began approximately 20 years ago. Since then, it has reached over 60,000 teens in New York (Westchester, Putnam, Rockland, Nassau, Bronx, and Manhattan), and Connecticut (Fairfield).
The newly developed REWIND II is a companion program that focuses on sexual assault prevention and incorporates all of REWIND I's proven educational strategies. REWIND II debuted last spring at Marymount in Manhattan to rave reviews. (They have already approached us about scheduling a presentation for this spring.)
We measure the program's effectiveness by testing students' subject-material knowledge before and after the program using a simple multiple choice quiz. This data is analyzed and compiled by a third party and has consistently shown that students "gain and retain" the potentially life-saving information.
