Communities that Care is a US-based initiative to reduce risky youth behaviours (violence, delinquency, dropping out of school, psychoactive substance abuse, teen pregnancy). It uses collective impact strategies in which all stakeholders come together to act on risk factors in communities, families, schools, and individuals. This program’s effectiveness in bringing lasting change to communities has been proven.

Type of intervention: Universal prevention and targeted prevention
