Bridging Community Strengths

Raphael Travis, Jr., UCLA School of Public Health

ABSTRACT
Bridging Community Strengths seeks to explore staff perceptions of program developmental quality, or the ability of community programs serving youth to provide the necessary program characteristics shown to support positive youth development. The role of prevention-based programming, particularly youth violence prevention, looms large in programming for youth. I will highlight the potential relationship between youth violence prevention efforts and efforts toward positive youth development.
