Social Development Strategy (SDS)


Communities that Care’s Social Development Strategy promotes positive youth development. CTC has organized the knowledge on what protects young people from developing health and behavior problems into an easy-to-use strategy.

  • Evidence-based framework that provides youth with opportunities, skills, and recognition for positive social involvement and interaction, in order to strengthen bonding
  • Promotes positive behaviors, while protecting against the creation of problem behaviors
  • All adult community members are trained and encouraged to use this strategy in their daily interactions with youth
  • Virtual trainings are now available through ZOOM Meetings
