Promotion/Prevention programs use methods or activities to reduce or deter specific problem behaviors such as bullying, gang involvement or substance abuse; or to promote positive behaviors and outcomes. Promotion/Prevention programs that aim for promoting positive behaviors can focus on employment skills, life skills, or be pro-social activities which are designed to encourage youth to behave in ways that benefit others. Some Promotion/Prevention can touch on different areas of promoting positive behaviors while working to prevent the problem behaviors within the same program. Promotion/Prevention programs can also utilize 40 Developmental Assets programming which focus on 40 research-based, positive qualities that influence young people’s development, helping them become caring, responsible, and productive adults. Programs in this category will meet with youth in an ongoing basis over a specific period of time.
