In order to identify and reduce the risk of gang and youth violence, this collaboration proposes to make gang intervention, gang prevention, and parenting intervention services more accessible and reduce the number of people that experience significant negative effects of youth and gang violence.
This program is designed to enable clients to make better choices when confronted with the pressures of everyday life. To hopefully, enable the client to make better decisions in any area of his/her environment such as in school, family, careers, relationships, gang association, etc. We serve youth who are referred via the courts to participate in our program. We serve youth from Wayne, Lenoir, and Greene counties. The target population is youth (male and female) ages 10-18, who are referred via the juvenile court system.
