The Reach for Health Community Youth Service (CYS+) program builds upon community-based service learning.

The health curriculum consists of 40 core lessons that focus on three primary health risks faced by urban youth: drug and alcohol use, violence, and sexual behaviors that may result in pregnancy or infection with HIV and other STIs. Students also spend about three hours each week providing service in community settings, such as nursing homes, senior centers, full-service clinics, and child day care centers. Under the guidance of their health teachers as well as staff from placement sites, students perform such tasks as reading to elders, assisting with meals, and helping with exercise, recreation, and arts. Students prepare for their service activities by learning more about the organization to which they are assigned and by setting personal goals for their service learning. The program is based on the health belief model and theories of social learning. As such, the program expects students to learn both by doing and by reflecting on their experiences.

Not only is sexual abuse (and child abuse) overwhelming and confusing for children, it's difficult for adults too! Most of us are intellectually and emotionally distressed when confronted with the realities of abuse and resulting trauma to children. Therefore, it is not a surprise that prevention/education of child abuse can be a difficult undertaking! The Good Touch/Bad Touch curriculum uses a comprehensive approach! Each year, children are introduced to developmentally appropriate materials, with previous years' lessons reinforced and new information added. Educators and other adults can receive our comprehensive training and become certified (comfortable) facilitating the curriculum in the classroom. This is the guide for Good Touch/Bad Touch FACILITATORS.
The current study is MEE's largest and most important undertaking to date. It represents a shift in the focus of our applied research, from 'the streets' to the home. This shift is crucial, since studies show that abuse early in life is a precursor to a continuous cycle of violence. The project itself involved not only MEE productions, but also the resources of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Minority Health Professions Foundation. Eventually, the project grew to include a research team, a review board of clinical experts, additional administrative staff, as well as a group of summer interns and MEE's media production team.
When asked to pick their favorite music, less than half of inner-city Black youth currently choose Hip-Hop/Rap, and its popularity decreases inversely with age.

These findings are based on a new national survey of 1,918 Black youth that examines their entertainment preferences and highlights the core media consumption, lifestyle, behavioral and attitudinal patterns of this group.

Love Notes aims to help young people make wise relationship and sexual choices- choices that will help them, rather than create barriers, for achieving their education, employment, relationship and family goals. It is designed especially for young people who are at risk for early and unplanned pregnancy, who are pregnant or already parenting, or who are involved with a partner who is a parent. Even so, much of the content of Love Notes would be relevant to any young person. A fundamental premise of this program is that one's love life is not neutral. The decisions one makes in romantic attachments can affect every other aspect of life- school and work success, physical and mental health, and especially one's child. If we want to help young people succeed, attention to education, employment, and parenting, as well as to healthy relationships and marriage, is needed. Troubled and unstable relationships and unplanned pregnancies have a way of derailing the progress young people may otherwise make in school, work or parenting.

Its specific goals is to motivate 11-13 year olds to abstain from sexual intercourse by giving them the knowledge and skills to do so. But the program's components have even broader potential.
