Project AIM (Adult Identity Mentoring) is an intervention program designed to address early adolescent (ages 11-14) risk trajectories, emergence of environmental risk, and the debilitating effects of poverty and racism. The goals of Project AIM are to provide youth with the motivation to enact safe choices to address deeper barriers to sexual risk prevention. Students are able to explore theories of their possible selves:
- What one might become (hopes)
- What one would like to become (goals)
- What one is afraid of becoming (fears and threats)
The curriculum consists of the following four units:
1. Legacy, Role Models and Peers
2. Self-Projection: Expanding Visions of Possible Selves
3. Self-Expression Through Work: A Positive Self
4. Skills for Fulfilling Positive Future Selves
The pilot program is being implemented at one middle school in our district.
