Capacity is the ability to do something. In this case, that “something” is preventing youth violence.
This section will help you identify your team’s strengths and weaknesses by using the STRYVE Capacity Assessment.
“[Capacity] is having the knowledge and the skills to understand violence prevention.”
– Tali, Program Coordinator (Boston)
In this section, you will be able to ask members of your team to take a survey. After the survey is completed, you will receive a report outlining your team’s strengths and potential improvement areas. There are two surveys - one for coalitions and one for local public health departments.
Knowing the gaps in your team’s key capacity areas will highlight what skills, resources, information, and support you may need in order to prevent youth violence in a more comprehensive way.
When you’re ready to get started, take the STRYVE Capacity Assessment.
