October 2011 Update

With Thanksgiving less than a month out and the next YVSP Community Forum a little over a month away, we're taking a look back and giving thanks for the steps we have taken forward together since the first YVSP Community Forum on December 9th, 2010. After a thoughtful, community-based process of development, the YVSP framework and model were launched and the Project's attention was redirected to getting it out into the hands of the community. We're still very much in that phase and wanted to review a few of the ways that the YVSP computer model and framework have been taught, used, talked about, and written about during the last year.

September 2011 Update

Youth Violence is a hot topic for the City of Boston and, on that front, the September YVSP Update is dedicated to highlighting Boston's strategy and activities of interest. In the spring of 2011, Mayor Menino's office released the City of Boston Plan outlining its youth violence prevention strategy. Within the last month, the Boston Public Health Commission-on behalf of the City as a whole-submitted a proposal for a Massachusetts state grant that would fund and advance the aforementioned youth violence reduction and prevention strategy.

May 2011 Update

This update was orginally mailed in May, 2011: From the beginning of this Project, a critical goal has been to develop a common framework of understanding and a shared set of terms in order to foster the kinds of conversations across neighborhoods and disciplines that help us work together to reduce youth violence and promote peace. In the years of creating the Model, it was mainly known to those people who were directly involved in the design work. But, it has been expanding out in some exciting ways as we've been introducing the model to the larger community.

April 2011 Update

Welcome the YVSP Updates Blog! We started sending out these periodic updates hoping that they would serve to keep us all informed on various happenings throughout the YVSP community and the broader community of people working to reduce youth violence. Now we are posting them here. This first update was orginally distributed in April 2011, and it introduces the latest version of the model: YVSP Strategy Lab 2.00.
