How does an organization or coalition disseminate, scale and continuously improve evidence-based youth development interventions with fidelity across multiple sites? Join YMCA of the USA, the national resource office for a network of 850 local Ys, to learn how implementation science is bridging the gap between research and practice. You’ll learn how to build an implementation team, what to expect at each stage of implementation, and where to find additional research on implementation frameworks that consider the research and best practices in implementation. Leaders implementing evidence-based practices, policies or programs in an organization of any size will walk away with practical next steps.
