Grantees that implement projects often focus on either a children and youth or an engaging men and boys project. Children and Youth projects focus on providing a continuum of efforts including but not limited to comprehensive child- and youth-centered prevention, intervention, treatment, and response strategies. Engaging Men and Boys projects support multi-faceted prevention strategies that involve community organizing, outreach, and public education through the mobilization of men and boys.
There are four primary focus areas of the grant CYEM program:
- Children Exposed to Violence (ages 0-10)
- Community Based (ages 11-24)
- School-Based (ages 5-19)
- Engaging Men and Boys
