Gang Prevention Through Targeted Outreach

The Gang Prevention Through Targeted Outreach program started in 2004. The program serves youth from ages 6-18 through afterschool and summer camp care. The goal of this program is to deter at-risk youth from joining gangs by educating them on the detrimental facets of gang activities and the fatal consequences to themselves, their futures and their families.
