Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development Sets High Standards for Empirically-Proven Interventions
Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development is an online database designed to help public agencies, schools, community organizations and individuals easily identify cost-effective interventions that meet the highest standard of evidence for helping young people reach their full potential. The Institute of Behavioral Science at the University of Colorado Boulder is pleased to announce the launch of a more mobile friendly and accessible website for Blueprints. The website offers information on how to search for effective interventions that address a range of outcomes, including education, emotional well-being, physical health and positive relationships, in addition to problem behaviors such as reducing criminal delinquency and recidivism rates. New to the site is an expanded classification system that includes information on interventions reviewed but lacking strong evidence. As such, Blueprints now offers information on a continuum of evidence, from having no credible evaluations, to having inconclusive evidence, to having very strong experimental evidence.
