Blueprints for healthy youth development

Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development is a registry of evidence-based positive youth development programs. Blueprints programs are identified based upon an initial review of a program’s evaluation evidence by Blueprints staff. An advisory board consisting of seven experts in the field of positive youth development conducts a final review and recommendation. The 5% of submitted programs which meet their selection criteria are designated as “promising” or “model”. Promising programs meet the minimum standard of effectiveness. Model programs meet a higher standard and provide greater confidence in the program’s capacity to change behavior. One suicide prevention program is listed as a promising program in Blueprints.
