Are you an American Counseling Association member who works as a school counselor in a high-risk school? Then ACA and high-risk students across the country need your help.

ACA has partnered with the American Psychological Association to implement the Safe and Supportive Schools Project (SSSP). Funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the project will promote the establishment of safe and supportive school environments for all students and school staff as an approach for preventing HIV and other sexually transmitted infections for adolescents.

Selected ACA school counselors will review resources and provide implementation guidance for interventions that school counselors, school nurses, school psychologists and school social workers can use to establish safe and supportive school environments in their school districts. The time commitment involves approximately 15 hours between February and August 2014. No travel will be necessary.
