ABOUT BLUEPRINTS FOR HEALTHY YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
Blueprints (formerly Blueprints for Violence Prevention) began in 1996 and is hosted at the University of Colorado Boulder—Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV). With over a decade of funding from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, Blueprints maintained a focus on violence and drug use outcomes. Through funding from the Annie E. Casey Foundation it has recently expanded its scope to include mental and physical health, self-regulation and educational achievement outcomes.
Blueprints’ standards for certifying model and promising programs are widely recognized as the most rigorous in use. Program effectiveness is based upon an initial review by CSPV and a final review and recommendation from a distinguished advisory board, comprised of seven experts in the field of youth development. Users can have confidence in the ability of the certified programs to change targeted behavior and developmental outcomes.
