Delinquency and Gang Prevention Initiative
This community-based initiative targets young people ages 6 to 18 that are at high risk for involvement or are already involved with delinquency and gangs.
These youth and teens are directed to positive alternatives and learn about violence prevention. Clubs collaborate with local partners to mobilize resources, recruit hardto- reach youth, mainstream them into appropriate Club programming and monitor their progress through individualized case management. Clubs and State Alliances can also receive assistance in pursuing local and state funding for programs addressing delinquency, gangs and violence.

In a 2007 Harris Interactive survey, 51 percent of Club alumni say they achieved a higher level of education than they thought possible because of attending their Club.
