Grant, 74 page(s)
National Youth Gang Center
Provides guidance for communities that are considering how best to address a youth gang problem that already exists or threatens to become a reality. The guidance is based on the implementation of the Comprehensive Gang Model (Model), which was developed by Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). The Report also describes the research that produced the Model, notes essential findings from evaluations of several programs demonstrating the Model in a variety of environments, and outlines “best practices” obtained from practitioners with years of experience in planning, implementing, and overseeing variations of the Model in their communities.
