The purpose of this community-based study was to test effectiveness of a peer-education safety education program that included student-produced videos and photovoice, nested in a 7-week summer Migrant Education Program. The second aim was to evaluate psychometrics of an adapted safety survey from Westaby and Lee used to evaluate changes in safety knowledge and attitudes. This was a one-group pre/post design intervention study. The convenience sample was Latino migrant stu- dents (N = 117, middle school [grades 6–8, n = 37], lower school [grades 3–5, n = 80]), with data collected at baseline and post-intervention. Participants were male n = 59, female n = 58. Nine student safety videos were created by the middle schoolers who presented safety to the lower school. There were no statistically signiﬁcant results comparing pre/post median subscale scores but results showed increased safety knowledge and there was a slight increase in injury experience.Wilcoxon Signed Rank Tests split for middle versus lower school showed statistical difference in middle school students over lower school students (P = .054) in safety knowledge. KruskalWallis analysis by gender showed statis- tical differences in medians in safety consciousness (χ = 5.949, df 1, P = .015); dangerous risk-taking 2 (χ = 5.409, df 1, P = .020). There were positive signiﬁcant associations between age and dangerous 2 risk taking participation; safety consciousness and dangerous risk taking; safety knowledge with safety activity participation; and safety activities with safety consciousness. Survey showed 0.69% random missing data. Cronbach’s alphas ranged .689–.863. Future research needs to review lessons learned and replication with larger samples.
