Title:Evaluating Community-Based Programs to Prevent Violence
Author(s):Hughes, Robert, Jr.
Subject(s):program development
family life
Abstract:Although many programs claim to help young people, schools, or communities prevent violence, little empirical evidence exists regarding their effectiveness. Recently, the Centers for Disease Control funded a wide variety of youth violence prevention programs in which the program developers are required to develop strong evaluation strategies. A recent issue of the American Journal of Preventive Medicine (1996) was devoted entirely to the presentation of thirteen school, hospital, and community violence prevention projects and their initial evaluation efforts. In this update, I will highlight some of the lessons learned from conducting evaluation in community settings.
