Description of Resource

"In 1996, the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV) at the University of Colorado at Boulder initiated a project to identify juvenile violence prevention programs that could provide the nucleus for a national violence prevention initiative. As of the date of the publication of this Fact Sheet, CSPV has identified 10 prevention and intervention programs that meet scientific standards of proven program effectiveness and is in the process of identifying additional programs. The 10 model programs, called Blueprints, have been effective in reducing adolescent violent crime, aggression, and substance abuse." - Publisher's description
