The Strategies To Act Now (STAN) Plan is the focal point of YADAPP. Each YADAPP Team ends the conference with a developed STAN Plan which they then implement throughout the upcoming school year. During the conference, Adult Sponsors participate in a track that complements the Teams’ development of the STAN Plan to provide support to the Team during implementation throughout the school year.
Junior Staff members facilitate YADAPP Teams' STAN Plan development through leadership and prevention training. Participants will learn the leadership and prevention skills necessary to make a difference in their school and community through the following training topics: leadership, alcohol and other drug trends, networking and advocacy, fundraising, project planning and virtual prevention strategies. The STAN Plan follows the model of the Strategic Prevention Framework and Teams are trained on the Center for Substance Abuse Prevention’s prevention strategies that must be utilized for the development of their plan.
After your Team puts their STAN Plan in action, we want to hear about it! Please remember to submit your STAN Plan Final Report.
To complete the STAN Plan Final Report, you must download and save the STAN Plan Final Report (PDF) to your desktop, fill it out and save it. Reports completed on a web browser will not save when submitted.
Even if your team has been unable to complete your original plan, we require a SPFR from each Team. This helps us assess the effectiveness of YADAPP and high school prevention efforts in Virginia, identify barriers teams may face and plan for the future.
Your final report also serves as your team’s application for the Wheeler Award!
