Youth Gang Intervention, OJJDP,
Youth Gang Suppression, OJJDP
The focus of CSC’s gang intervention and suppression work is to decrease incidents of gang violence, the escalation of violence and retaliatory violence in Wards 1 through 5. Our program uses innovative strategies (from peacemaking retreats and mediations, to school-based educational and enrichment services, to soccer) to provide young people with a diversion from gang involvement.
