Striving To Reduce Youth Violence Everywhere (STRYVE)
STRYVE is a national initiative led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to prevent youth violence before it starts among young people ages 10 to 24. STRYVE’s vision is safe and healthy youth who can achieve their full potential as connected and contributing members of thriving, violence-free families, schools, and communities. As member of the STRYVE Action Council, NACCHO collaborates with the CDC and other Action Council members to expand and enhance STRYVE’s community guidance, promote STRYVE, and build momentum for its implementation. The initiative offers training, resources, and collaboration spaces that community members, organizations, and leaders can use to develop, implement, and evaluate youth violence prevention approaches.
