  1. Program Provider
  2. Full Description


Program Summary:
This ArtsTech uses a multi-pronged approach to reducing/eliminating violence and substance abuse among our most troubled, at-risk youth and in identified violence “hot spot” neighborhoods. Using the evidence-based techniques identified by the Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC), ArtsTech seeks to prevent violence and accompanying substance abuse by providing strength-based strategies of youth development. The recommendations from the CDC's review of best practices are infused in all our youth development programming and includes culturally specific and relevant strategies based on the unique needs of the urban core and minority youth.
