Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $324,169)

Youth gangs continue to have a significant adverse impact on youth, families, and communities across America. A growing number of communities have adopted multi-strategy, multi-disciplinary approaches to reducing and preventing gang activity. The OJJDP FY 2010 Youth Gang Prevention and Intervention Program provides funding for localities to replicate selected secondary gang prevention and intervention programs that are considered promising or effective. These programs must be a part of an existing community based comprehensive anti-gang initiative. This program is authorized by the Department of Justice Appropriations Act, 2010, Pub. L. No. 111-117.

The Boys & Girls Clubs of Greater Sacramento will implement a project to reduce gang membership and activity among students aged 9 to 12 who attend high-risk schools in the Sacramento City Unified School District (SCUSD). The goals of the project are 1) To initiate the Boys & Girls Club Gang Prevention Through Targeted Outreach (GPTTO) program to provide positive alternatives for Sacramento youth who are at risk for gang membership and 2) To increase community collaboration for gang prevention.
