Abstract

This article describes a decade-long partnership between the Prevention Research Center at Penn State and the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. This partnership has evolved into a multi-agency initiative supporting the implementation of nearly 200 replications of evidence-based prevention and intervention programs, and a series of studies indicating a significant and sustained impact on youth outcomes and more efficient utilization of system resources. We describe how the collaboration has developed into a sophisticated prevention support infrastructure, discuss the partnership and policy lessons learned throughout this journey, and identify remaining issues in promoting this type of research-policy partnership.
