EFFECTIVE PROGRAMS IN TWO SOCIAL DOMAINS

Eight programs combined two social domains or components.  Seven effective youth development programs were conducted in combined family and school domains:  the Child Development Project, Fast Track, Metropolitan Area Child Study, Reducing the Risk, the Seattle Social Development Project, the Social Competence Program for Young Adolescents, and Success for All.  These programs successfully changed youth outcomes, promoted positive youth development constructs and strategies, and incorporated parent or family involvement. One program, Teen Outreach, combined school and community domains.
