 More about the Portal 


This eLearning Portal has been created to offer prevention information to those new to prevention and to increase the knowledge of those who work actively in prevention efforts in their communities. Our overall goal is to expand prevention practices in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Our aim is to provide service providers and practitioners with the resources needed to fully inform them about prevention and intervention approaches and applications.


Our overall vision is to increase knowledge and encourage adoption and utilization of prevention science frameworks and implementation science principles in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.


The Prevention Learning Portal has been made possible through grant funding from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency (PCCD), awarded to the Evidence-based Prevention and Intervention Support (EPIS) project in the Edna Bennett Pierce Prevention Research Center (PRC) at The Pennsylvania State University. EPIS and the PRC are housed within the College of Health and Human Development.

The courses have been developed by subject matter experts in EPIS. All views and information provided in these courses reflect current practices and information available to the experts. Refer questions, comments, and suggestions for new courses to:
