Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $739,982)

The National Crime Prevention Council's Teens, Crime and Community (TCC) initiative will provide training to teachers and facilitators to implement the Community Works and Youth Safety Corps programs in their communities, support technical assistant centers, host training seminars, and serve as a central information source (maintaining a website and issuing a newsletter) for youth groups and organizations throughout the country. The goal of TCC is to reduce teen victimization by providing youths with constructive activities and educating them about life choices. TCC will report on performance measures including the amount learned and satisfaction of those trained as shown by surveys and follow-up consultations, the number of visits to its website, and the amount of assistance that its technical centers provide.
