National Centers of Excellence on Youth Violence

With homicide still serving as the third leading cause of death, youth violence remains a key public health issue.

The National Centers of Excellence bring academic institutions and communities together to collaboratively stop violence and promote healthy safe environments for youth. These six centers are funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

All six centers are also a part of the ACE Network, a collaborative group which promotes and encourages the efforts of four specific work groups:

  1. Evaluation and indicators,
  2. Implementation and fidelity
  3. Policy
  4. Training

Additional information about the ACE Network and additional CDC-funded violence prevention initiatives can be found on the CDC Violence Prevention site.
