A strategy is considered “evidence-based” when research has shown the strategy to be effective, meaning that the strategy resulted in the changes it was designed to achieve. By using strategies that have already demonstrated effectiveness, you are giving your own efforts a better chance at success.

Strategies in our STRYVE Strategy Selector Tool were included because they showed evidence of effectiveness for preventing youth violence or affecting risk and protective factors associated with youth violence.
