Registries of Programs Effective in Reducing Youth Risk Behaviors
Various federal agencies have identified youth-related programs that they consider worthy of recommendation on the basis of expert opinion or a review of design and research evidence. These programs focus on different health topics, risk behaviors, and settings. Some, but not all, of these programs have shown evidence in reducing youth risk behaviors.
Each agency has its own process and criteria for determining the programs that are worthy of recommendation. Users are encouraged to review each web site to understand the inclusion criteria the registry used.
