National Gang Center Blog Discusses Study on Reducing Youth Gang Membership and Delinquency

February 22, 2019

The National Gang Center has posted a new blog examining a study cosponsored by OJJDP and the National Institute of Justice on reducing youth gang membership and delinquency among gang-involved youth. The study evaluated a trial modification of the Functional Family Therapy (FFT) model on youth from the Philadelphia Juvenile and Family Court. The study found that the FFT model was effective for reducing delinquency, substance use, and recidivism for youth at high risk for gang membership.
