Can we adapt Reducing the Risk (or another school-based program) for an out-of-school setting?

This would be a yellow-light adaptation. Success would depend on the setting and ensuring youth participation in a majority of the sessions.

Refer to the Core Components and Adaptation Guidelines documents for Reducing the Risk (RTR) to learn more about whether the program can be adapted for your particular setting.  These can be found on the Adaptation Guidelines & Tools tab on the RTR page
