Project AIM is a CDC-endorsed program created to reduce sexual risk and substance abuse risk among youth.
Created by: Dr. Leslie Clark
Project AIM is a group-level youth development intervention designed to address risk trajectories, emergence of environmental risk and the debilitating effects of poverty and racism. The intervention is based on the Theory of Possible Selves, which states that a person’s motivation is determined by a balance of positive and negative ways people see themselves in the future. Individuals who are able to imagine both possible positive and negative futures are more likely to work toward their life goals and achieve future success. Thus, Project AIM encourages at-risk youth to imagine a positive future and discuss how current risk behaviors can be a barrier to a successful adulthood.
The goals of Project AIM are to provide youth with the motivation to enact safe choices. 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:
- Legacy, Role Models and Peers
- Self-Projection: Expanding Visions of Possible Selves
- Self-Expression Through Work: A Positive Self
- Skills for Fulfilling Positive Future Selves
Target population: At-risk adolescents
Project AIM was tested in schools among African-American seventh grade students in a suburb near Birmingham, Alabama. At 12 weeks after the intervention, youth participating in Project AIM compared with youth not receiving the intervention reported the following outcomes:
- Increased abstinence
- Decreased intention to engage in sex
