Tools For Change
IPS’s Toolkit consists of a suite of tools to assist advocates, community groups, prevention practitioners, and policymakers in achieving community transformation. IPS’s tools are for practical application in the field, supporting all functions necessary for creating community-level change: Media Advocacy, Data & Research, Sustainability, Policy & Systems Change, and Community Organizing.

IPS’s Approach to Community Transformation (ACT) Model is our proven framework for creating lasting population-level change and advancing equity. The ACT Model is an upstream approach. Its six components strategically intersect to transform communities and to address social, cultural, physical, environmental, political, economic, and institutional barriers to equity.
The ACT Model has been utilized in communities around the nation. It is applied in partnership with community members.
