Examples of funded projects...

Projects funded during fiscal year 2001 include continuation programs designed to prevent youth from entering gangs and to intervene with gang members and to divert them away from gangs and toward more constructive programs by providing education/recreation and counseling services; programs to prevent high school students from dropping out of school and joining gangs; several gang related research activities; and to provide training and technical assistance to key policy makers, and to foster improved public and private agency gang and drug prevention, intervention and suppression strategies. In addition, a comprehensive gang program that integrates the various components of the juvenile justice system with schools and supports the mobilization of the community to address the prevention of gang involvement and intervention with gangs to reduce violence. This program model also is being implemented as part of a larger effort to develop a "continuum of care" for youth in five additional communities.
