STRYVE is a national initiative led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Division of Violence Prevention (DVP). This initiative provides direction at the national, state, and local levels on how to prevent youth violence with a public health approach,
action that is comprehensive and driven by multiple sectors, and the use of prevention strategies that are based on the best available research evidence. 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. STRYVE’s goals are to:
• Increase public health leadership in preventing youth violence;
• Promote the widespread use of youth violence prevention approaches that are based on the best available evidence; and
• Achieve national reductions in youth violence.
This Foundational Resource defines STRYVE’s scope of work and outlines the research and practice that guide this work. Because multiple activities are necessary to achieve the STRYVE goals, this Foundational Resource serves as a common point of reference for the STRYVE components. It helps to ensure that the STRYVE components are unified and consistent. The
information presented in this document may also be used by the STRYVE components to support the development of other materials and activities. This Foundational Resource lays out the conceptual framework for the STRYVE initiative. The specific activities of the various STRYVE components may vary and evolve over time as work with partners continues. The primary audience of this Foundational Resource is the developers, managers, and implementers of the various STRYVE components.
The STRYVE Foundational Resource articulates CDC’s public health approach to preventing youth violence and outlines the best strategies to stopping youth violence before it occurs. Consequently, a secondary audience for this document is the multiple governmental and nongovernmental groups and individuals who have a role in prioritizing, selecting, and implementing youth violence prevention activities. These groups include: public health, education, criminal justice, public safety, housing, labor, businesses, faith-based organizations, community leaders and decision makers, youth and families, and other private and nonprofit organizations. These partners will find valuable information in this document that encourages the increased engagement of public health in preventing youth violence and the implementation of prevention activities that are effective, efficient, and sustainable.
