Proposed Project

Youth Advice & Feedback to Inform Choose Respect Implementation (New)—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

NCIPC seeks to obtain, over a five year period, advice and feedback from tweens/teens (aged 11-14) regarding message development/placement, creative executions, appropriate partners, and other similar issues, to inform ongoing implementation and evaluation of the Choose Respect campaign (OMB#0920-0687), an initiative intended to promote youth awareness of and participation in healthy peer relationships. Communication research indicates that campaign planning implementation must employ a consumer-oriented approach to ensure that program messages/materials, and their placement, can successfully gain the attention of and resonate with the intended audience. To that end, the NCIPC proposes conducting further planning, implementation, and evaluation research that enlists the involvement and support of youth, parents and other influencers and measures the effect of the campaign on the target audiences. The evaluation will provide interim and ongoing feedback to campaign planners regarding the implementation and progress of the campaign.

The proposed data collection will enlist geographically, culturally/racially/ethnically, and socio-economically diverse groups of young people to complete: (1) Ten-minute online surveys, with 200 respondents, four times per year; and (2) 12 in-person focus groups, with 12 participants each, twice per year. Online surveys will reduce the potential burden for young people as web-based formats are convenient and consistent with the way they communicate and spend their leisure time. Online surveys—Each web-based survey will involve a different group of 200 tweens/teens. In-person focus groups—First and second focus groups will involve different groups of young people. The following focus groups will be segmented by age and gender, as indicated. The total annualized estimated burden hours are 1,354.

There are no costs to respondents other than their time.Start Printed Page 6162
