The grant was used to disseminate information regarding a new, innovative bachelor of applied arts in behavioral psychology program to 2,000 high schools in Canada and northern New York State. The program was the first of its kind in Canada and today offers a comprehensive 4-year degree that includes both classroom instruction as well as 1,100 hours of supervised placements in three different community agencies. Students in the program acquire the knowledge and skills in behavioral psychology to be employed in a variety of social service settings or to pursue additional post-secondary education. Although this program is offered at St. Lawrence College in Kingston, Ontario, Canada, students from around the world may participate, further extending the potential reach of the project.
