programs: Children Exposed to Violence Program (CEV); Services to Advocate for and Respond to Youth Program (Youth Services); Services, Training, Education and Policies to Reduce Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking in Secondary Schools Grant Program (STEP); and Engaging Men in Preventing Sexual Assault, Domestic Violence, Dating Violence, and Stalking Program (Engaging Men).

The Consolidated Youth Program creates a unique opportunity for communities to increase collaboration among non-profit victim services, violence prevention and children and youth-serving organizations, organizations and programs that support men?s role in combating violence against women and girls, schools, and tribal and local government agencies.

This program has two primary purposes and supports projects that implement one or both of these areas.

First, the program supports comprehensive child- and youth-centered intervention and prevention programs that maximize community based efforts and evidence-informed practices to more fully address domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.

Comprehensive programs include victim services to youth and children exposed to violence; training to professionals to improve interventions and responses; coordinated school based strategies; supportive services to non-offending parents; and coordinated community responses to violence targeting children and youth.

Second, the program supports multi-faceted prevention strategies that involve community organizing, outreach, public education and mobilization that utilize men as influencers of other men and boys and encourages them to work as allies with women and girls to prevent domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault and stalking.
