Youth violence can be prevented, and there are many effective strategies that likely fit with your team, your goals, and your community. The STRYVE Strategy Selector Tool in this section gives you access to strategies that have prevented youth violence or changed risk and protective factors for youth violence in other communities.
The key to using this tool is understanding your team’s capacity and choosing strategies that line up with your community’s specific needs, challenges, and resources.
“A lot of times communities can find a proven program that is already developed. They don’t have to recreate the wheel… There are things that are (already) out there that people should be doing.”
- Valerie, Community Leader (Houston)
