OJJDP Youth in Action Series, Bulletin, 8 page(s)
Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention
 
Teaches youth how to use music, drama, dance, and visual arts programs to draw attention to problems in their communities, educate others on the benefits of crime prevention, and suggest ways to prevent crime. In addition to presenting examples of dance-, music-, and drama-related programs that have successfully combined strategies for crime prevention and crime reduction, the Bulletin identifies specific challenges and rewards of instituting this type of program, supplies tips on evaluating programs, and lists organizations and programs that youth may contact for additional information. The Bulletin's writing and format are geared to a youth audience.
