National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention

button2_espanolWith grants from the U.S. Department of Justice, the Research and Evaluation Center assessed the efforts and implementation of the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention.

Initiated by the White House in 2010, the National Forum brought together the U.S. Department of Justice, Department of Education, the Departments of Labor, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, and the Office of National Drug Control Policy. The efforts of these federal agencies supported the development and implementation of youth violence prevention initiatives in more than a dozen U.S. communities. The Research and Evaluation Center assessed the outcomes of the National Forum in the first ten of these cities: Boston, Camden (NJ), Chicago, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis, New Orleans, and Philadelphia, as well as Salinas and San Jose, California.
