Youth to Youth Endorsed as Promising Practice

Dover Youth to Youth was recently notified by the New Hampshire Center for Excellence that it has been officially designated as a “New Hampshire Promising Practice”. This designation follows a first review by an expert research panel of the results of Dover’s research into the drug prevention program’s effectiveness. Being designated as a promising practice is an important intermediate step in the process of achieving official determination as having produced evidence-based, statistically significant outcomes.
