      Acting Together

      nutshell

      Acting Together is a strength-based project aimed at preventing youth gang involvement. The project represents collaboration between academic researchers and community partners. It is federally funded through the Community-University Research Alliance (CURA) award of $1 million by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council (SSHRC) of Canada.

      The aim of AT-CURA project is to identify factors that prevent youth from violent and gang-related criminal activities. Using mixed methodology of academic research (Quantitative) and community consultations (Qualitative), the project will provide an evidence-based foundation to create programs to foster the identified preventive factors among youth. 

      Research Questions

      1. What are the culturally relevant modifiable protective factors pertaining to youth involvement in gang-related violence?
      2. What are the assets and strengths of our youth?
      3. What preventative programs and strategies will most effectively reduce youth involvement in gang-related violence?

      Acting Together will address its research questions through three primary activities:

      1. Research (Quantitative and Qualitative)
      2. Training and education
      3. Knowledge dissemination
