Implementing Community Level Strategies to Prevent Violence – Assessing the Impact of Denver’s Youth Violence Prevention Center

This presentation – taking place on  Tuesday, August 30, 2022, 12 pm to 1 pm – describes the implementation and impact of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s investment in the Youth Violence Prevention Center – Denver (YVPC-D). The YVPC-D focused on implementing Communities That Cares and several community-level prevention strategies in two Denver neighborhoods disproportionately affected by youth violence. Our study included a process and outcome evaluation as well as exploratory research aimed to better understand neighborhood social processes that impact youth violence.
