MST RECEIVES HIGHEST DESIGNATION FROM BLUEPRINTS FOR HEALTHY YOUTH DEVELOPMENT
MST recently received the Model-Plus Program designation from Blueprints for Healthy Youth Development, an organization that provides a registry of evidence-based positive youth development programs designed to promote the health and well-being of children and teens. The Model-Plus Program designation is given to programs with the highest standard of effectiveness and readiness for scale.
Blueprints created the Model-Plus designation last year as a way to help further distinguish its top model programs. Each program that receives the Blueprints seal is identified based on an initial review of program evaluation evidence by the Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence (CSPV) and a final review and recommendation from a distinguished advisory board, consisting of seven experts in the field of positive youth development.
More than 1,400 programs have been reviewed, but less than 5 percent have been designated as Model or Promising Programs. MST is one of only two models to receive the highest-level, Model-Plus Program designation.
In order to receive the Model-Plus Program designation, high-quality independent replications must be available. If present, the independent replications are reviewed to determine the quality of the replication studies. Although most of the Blueprints programs have independent replications, there were only two programs that met Blueprint’s high standards: MST and LifeSkills Training.
It is an honor to receive this designation which serves as further proof that MST is setting the standard for quality evidence-based programs throughout the community and beyond. Thank you to our team for making this possible!
