In 2011, CSPV was designated by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as a National Center of Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention (formerly called ACE) to lead an effort to reduce youth violence in Denver's Montbello neighborhood. This effort is called Steps to Success. The Center works closely with residents and community partners to reduce rates of violence among 10-24 year olds using evidence-based programs and approaches.
