Department of Education

U.S. Department of Education's Safe and Drug-Free Schools' Exemplary and Promising Programs
The U.S. Department of Education's Safe and Drug-Free Schools Program has used an expert panel process to identify programs that should be promoted nationally as promising or exemplary. A 15-member Expert Panel oversaw a valid and reliable process for identifying effective school-based programs that promote healthy students and safe, disciplined, and drug-free schools. Using this process, the panel identified 9 exemplary and 33 promising programs.

The OJJDP Model Programs Guide is a user-friendly, online portal to scientifically tested and proven programs that address a range of issues across the juvenile justice spectrum. Developed as a tool to support the Title V Community Prevention Grants Program, the Guide has been recently expanded. The Guide now profiles more than 175 prevention and intervention programs and helps communities identify those that best suit their needs. Users can search the Guide's database by program category, target population, risk and protective factors, effectiveness rating, and other parameters. Juvenile justice practitioners are encouraged to take advantage of this helpful resource.

Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence

Blueprints for Violence Prevention
The Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence at the University of Colorado at Boulder, with support from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and OJJDP, designed and launched a national violence prevention initiative to identify violence prevention programs that are effective. The project has identified 11 model programs that meet a strict scientific standard of program effectiveness. Another 18 programs have been identified as promising. These interventions have been summarized in a series of "blueprints" that describe their theoretical rationales, core components, evaluation designs and results, and practical implementation experiences across multiple sites.
