Faith- and Community-Based Youth Violence Prevention Training and Technical Assistance Project

This program aims to build the capacity of OJJDP’s Safe and Thriving Communities in its implementation of comprehensive youth violence prevention, intervention, and suppression plans. This work effectively builds on Development Services Group, Inc.’s (DSG) previous training and technical assistance (TTA) efforts for the Safe and Thriving initiative, to support their gang and gun violence prevention and community violence reduction efforts. Through this project, the DSG team encourages the coordination of faith- and community-based efforts across traditions to address youth violence.
