Overall management of the pilot execution during the intensive phase (second wave) starting in Y2 will be done, including all the content, training, technical and organizational aspects of the planned intervention. This task will leverage on the lessons learnt during the deployment of the program in Y1, so that all required refinements of the UPRIGHT program and procedures are considered and incorporated in the deployment of second wave.
The deployment process will run in parallel in the schools that already have committed their participation of 5 locations, synchronized with the beginning/end of the school year. The local coordinators will be responsible of the interactions with all the local participants and professionals involved. Each pilot site will involve a intervention group (N=300 youths, N=300 families and 30 teachers) and a control group (N=300 youths, N=300 families and 30 teachers).
From M21 to M24, teachers will be trained by professionals about the UPRIGHT program, through face-to-face, group sessions and virtual coaching as described in concept and methodology, receiving the different components during the period. From M25 to M30 teachers will transfer the UPRIGHT knowledge and skills to students. From M21 to M24 families will be invited to participate in face-to-face session and/or use an online web platform providing coaching material about positive parenting styles.
