Our Research

Recognizing the challenges facing youth in urban settings, our 5-year research agenda seeks to design, implement and evaluate programs that enhance resiliency and reduce the frequency and impact of youth violence, injury and death. We employ community-based participatory research (CBPR) techniques to create safer communities by ameliorating the factors contributing to youth violence.

CBPR is a collaborative process in which researchers partner with community members to help reduce health disparities. The participatory design allows the community to guide how the research is implemented and how its outcomes are disseminated. At the same time researchers share the theories and methodologies that strengthen the assessment and implementation of those interventions.  CBPR also allows the participating communities to immediately benefit from the research.
