In support of the G.R.E.A.T. Middle School Curriculum, this grant is to be used solely to implement and complete the “Making My School a G.R.E.A.T. Place” school service project. These projects will have a significant community impact insofar as they will serve as avenues for the students to demonstrate their skills in positive communication, judgment, behavior, decision making, and concern for others through sharing and taking ownership in their school and community. The project will serve as a bridge connecting G.R.E.A.T. youth, law enforcement, the school, and the community through positive, interactive experiences.

G.R.E.A.T. Success: Honduras G.R.E.A.T. Program

Two major aims of the G.R.E.A.T. Program are (1) providing youth with the skills they need to avoid gangs and violence and (2) improving relationships between youth and the law enforcement officers in their communities. The G.R.E.A.T. Program in Honduras has been working very hard over the past seven years to achieve those aims and has been very successful in their efforts. To date, more than 160,000 Honduran children have participated in the G.R.E.A.T. Program and more than 116 instructors have been trained to teach this Program nationwide.
