Steps to Success is led by community members.

Our Methods & Impact

  • We intervene early to prevent problem behavior.
  • We address social/emotional development, family cohesiveness and school success.
  • We improve positive recognition of young people.
  • We improve Montbello's livability.

Steps to Success is working to reduce youth violence by at least 10% by 2016 in Montbello and is community-driven. Our Montbello Community Board makes the decisions. Steps to Success uses the evidence-based Communities That Care model to build consensus amongst community members and our program aligns with Mayor Hancock's Cradle to Career priorities. 

CU Boulder's Center for the Study and Prevention of Violence oversees the Steps to Success project. The project is funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and is one of six National Centers of Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention.
