The Center for Innovative Practices (CIP) is a training and technical assistance center within the Begun Center. Their mission is to provide support to community based agencies that seek to implement interventions that improve outcomes for youth and families. These interventions are evidence-based and specific to the need of the organization and community. CIP will provide initial training of the EBP to the organization, then continue to support their work through technical assistance and consultation.
