The Risk/Resiliency Assessment Project for Students (RAPS) uses a positive youth development approach to engage students directly in the analysis and reporting of their school’s 2011 NM-YRRS data. Participants were 35 high school students from two Albuquerque area high schools who attended a day-long project retreat. Survey metrics included pre/post tests for critical health literacy, participant sense of community engagement, and pre/post assessment of student self-efficacy and civic attitudes. Survey items were derived from The Measure of Service Learning: Research Scales to Assess Student Experiences.
