Synopsis: Communities that Care (CTC) is a prevention planning and service delivery system that mobilizes communities to address adolescent behavior problems through a science-based approach to prevention. A community-randomized field trial of CTC, the Community Youth Development Study, is currently being conducted in 12 matched-pairs of communities across seven states. We present an overview of the CYDS and report recent findings on prevention system outcomes and adolescent behaviors after 3 years of the study.
