Working across all of our content areas, ICS staff members have diverse experiences engaging community leaders and members who are looking to identify and address specific issues. Our work is based on the belief that communities have the resources they need to solve problems, and that we can connect them with colleagues and information.

In areas of youth violence prevention, we have been engaged directly with White House initiatives to limit violence in cities through the National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention. It’s been a rewarding effort, as our affiliated staff have had an opportunity to contribute to solving highly complex problems.

We support leaders first by learning how they think about their organization or community. By applying our technical assistance tools and research-based frameworks, our staff assist leaders in moving their organizations forward.
