Courtney Calloway is a School Intervention Coach II at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia's (CHOP) Center for Violence Prevention (CVP). His work focuses on developing, training, and sustaining school-based interventions related to reducing bullying and aggression and improving children’s social and emotional skills. At CHOP, Courtney contributes to the development, implementation, and evaluation of Friend to Friend and Preventing Aggression In Schools Everyday (PRAISE) interventions aimed at reducing aggression and bullying for urban elementary school youth.

In his previous work as a Research Assistant at CVP with the Advancing Collaboration for Students’ Emotional and School Success (Project ACCESS) team, Courtney conducted diagnostic evaluations with parents using the Columbia Diagnostic Interview Schedule for Children (CDISC) and completed standard questionnaires with students from six participating schools in North Philadelphia.

Prior to his roles at CHOP, Courtney worked at the School District of Philadelphia with youth who had quit school and assisted those youth with information and resources to get them back into school. Courtney also tracked their process until they were back in classes. Working as Professional Development Facilitator with the Philadelphia Youth Network, Mr. Calloway also taught nearly 100 14-21-year-olds professional skills in the workplace. In this role, Courtney led discussions on teamwork, financial stability, interview etiquette, and self-development. In addition, Courtney provided information on transitions from high school into the workplace and college while giving positive feedback and critiques to encourage youth.

Mr. Calloway’s interdisciplinary background in school and mental health counseling and education has allowed him to contribute to both the research and clinical components of school-based interventions, like Friend to Friend and PRAISE.
