Abstract

This book describes an approach to developing and testing effective community-based programs for at-risk children and youth. Elements of risk and resilience, positive youth development, and organizational collaboration are used to develop a comprehensive intervention framework called the Integrated Prevention and Early Intervention (IPEI) Model. The IPEI is applied to a community-based after-school program called the Bridge Project to illustrate how an integrated intervention framework can be used to prevent childhood and adolescent problems and improve academic achievement. Findings from an evaluation of Bridge Project intervention components are presented. Recommendations for advancing policy and practice for high-risk youth in community-based programs are described.
