STRYVE (Striving To Reduce Youth Violence Everywhere) is aimed at reducing the perpetration of violence by youth ages 10 to 24. It is a guide for communities, states and the country to use in developing and implementing evidence-informed strategies, programs, and policies for stopping violence before it occurs using a public health approach. Throughout 2010, CDC will be partnering with groups to design STRYVE's action steps that will aid communities in designing and implementing a comprehensive community wide approach to youth violence prevention.
