What's Happening Now

This project was piloted in four communities across the United States: Durham, Nashville, rural Pennsylvania and Seattle. Fast Track is based on the hypothesis that improving child competencies, parenting effectiveness, school context and school-home communications will, over time, contribute to preventing certain behaviors across the period from early childhood through adolescence.
