The goal of the Sacramento Youth Development and Crime Prevention (YDCP) program is to reduce at-risk youth's criminal involvement by providing comprehensive employment and counseling services to youth involved in the foster care and probation system.

The YDCP program will achieve the goals of education, work preparation and/or work experience by focusing on youth development, strength building, and leadership development. Progress will be measured by youth participation rate, participants' meeting benchmark goals for education, work preparation or work experience/leadership activities and reduction of re-entry or entry into the juvenile justice system.NCA/NCF
