Step Two: Implement Evidence-Based Programming

Once Darcy has properly described the magnitude and nature of the problem in her community, she is ready to move on to the next step: implementing evidence-based programming.

The program Darcy chooses to implement should have previously demonstrated success in repeated, credible evaluations, and meet the specific needs of her target population.  Specifically, Darcy needs to choose a program that addresses juvenile delinquency by reducing truancy and dropout rates among high school students.

There are many resources available online to locate specific programs that have demonstrated results, including the Blueprints for Violence Prevention programs and OJJDP’s Model Programs Guide.
