They will then build a prevention program that minimizes duplication and maximizes delivery of services to reduce factors leading to delinquency including substance use, antisocial behavior, truancy, gang involvement, gun violence, and poor academic performance. Performance measures will include the number of program youth and /or families served, the percentage of program youth who offend or reoffend, and the percentage of youth exhibiting desired changes in targeted behaviors.
