Targeted Outreach Strategic Approaches

In response to the number of youth gangs growing in cities and expanding to suburban and rural communities, Boys & Girls Clubs of America developed a special gang prevention and intervention initiative targeting youth ages 6 to 18. Through referrals from schools, courts, law enforcement and community youth service agencies, the tested and proven Targeted Outreach program identifies and recruits delinquent youth, or those "at risk" of delinquency, into ongoing Club programs and activities. This initiative is sponsored by the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention, U.S. Department of Justice.
