Session: The Impact of Massachusetts’ Safe and Successful Youth Initiative on Reducing Urban Gun Violence
Date: Thursday, November 2
Event Time: 8:00 a.m.–9:30 a.m. (Central)
Presenter: Trevor Fronius (WestEd)
This presentation will highlight the culmination of more than a decade of evaluation studies covering the Massachusetts Safe and Successful Youth Initiative (SSYI) led by WestEd JPRC and American Institutes for Research researchers.
The initiative is a multifaceted, community-based strategy that, in partnership with law enforcement, uses a public health approach to eliminate lethal and nonlethal violence among young people who have already committed, and who have often been the victim of, gun and gang violence.
