|White House Report Highlights OJJDP Delinquency Prevention Models
July 21, 2015
The White House's Council of Economic Advisers has released a report on closing opportunity gaps for disadvantaged youth that highlights two promising programs: One Summer Jobs Plus (OSP) and Becoming a Man (BAM). With OJJDP-supported evaluation grants, the University of Chicago Crime Lab is currently testing both youth-focused delinquency prevention models. The White House has recognized the BAM approach as an example of innovation in advancing the goals of the My Brother's Keeper initiative for minority males.
