Homicide is the third leading cause of death for young people ages 10 to 24. Youth violence can be reduced and prevented. Effective interventions must be disseminated and adopted by local and state authorities, community-based organizations and private sector partners.
The Center's for Disease Prevention and Control (CDC's) technical package, A Comprehensive Technical Package for the Prevention of Youth Violence and Associated Risk Behaviors, helps communities and states priortize youth violence prevention strategies based on the best available evidence.
