STRYVE: Striving To Reduce Youth Violence Everywhere
STRYVE is a national initiative led by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to prevent youth violence.
STRYVE’s vision is safe and healthy youth achieving their full potential, as connected and contributing members of thriving, violence-free families, schools, and communities. To realize this vision, STRYVE works to
- Increase public health leadership to prevent youth violence
- Promote the widespread adoption of youth violence prevention strategies based on the best available evidence
- Reduce the rates of youth violence on a national scale
Through its interacting components, STRYVE helps communities take a public health approach to preventing youth violence—stopping it before it even starts.
