INSIGHTS is currently in 14 schools in Jamaica

Rolling-out INSIGHTS in Jamaica has involved many iterative steps:

  • With significant funding from the Jamaican CHASE Fund, an INSIGHTS in Jamaica Centre has been established at the University of the West Indies, Mona. The Centre:
    • Trains facilitators to conduct the intervention and fidelity auditors to assess their delivery of the programs.   
    • Acquires funding from corporations, foundations, and individuals for sponsoring the intervention at additional educational settings; and
    • Coordinates research activities.
  • An efficacy study, funded by the University of the West Indies, begins January 2015.
  • Additional funding has been acquired from the Fulbright Alumni Fund to extend INSIGHTS into two rural communities.  
  • An INSIGHTS in Jamaica Advisory Board has been established to assure the sustainability of the intervention in the country.

The charter establishing INSIGHTS in Jamaica is signed at the University of the West Indies
