Drexel University’s Center for the Prevention of School-Aged Violence strives to create public awareness of the need for youth-oriented, evidence-based efforts focused on preventing youth violence in environments where it occurs: schools, homes, and communities. The vision of the Center, which is a result of the recent rise in youth violence, is to help ensure that all youth possess social and cognitive skills to prevent violence on their own. The Center aims to accomplish this through education, scholarship, media awareness, policy advocacy, and evidence-based programming. The Center also aims to inform policy leaders and stakeholders of the various types of evidence-based activities that prevent school-aged violence.
