Collaborative Partners

Creative Interventions is based upon a collaborative model of program development and co-learning. Parallel to its collective/community approach to violence intervention and prevention, the organization relies upon a collaborative approach which takes advantage of the expertise, resources and community connections of its organizational partners while providing a common set of values, goals and objectives.
