This report presents results from the Community-based Violence Prevention study of the Safe and Successful Youth Initiative's (SSYI's) impact on violent crime in Massachusetts. In 2010, Massachusetts invested in the Massachusetts SSYI, an initiative launched in eleven cities with the highest per capita rates of violent crime. SSYI aims to reduce violence and promote healthy development and outcomes among young males, ages 14-24 who are at the greatest risk for violent offending and victimization.
