-Prevention: strives to help families meet the formidable challenges of raising a child today by addressing topics that include school violence, child development, -bullying, organized sports, child abuse, and the juvenile justice system.
-Prevention Programs: including early childhood, school-based, and after school initiatives. Strategies using multiple techniques, i.e. such as community policing.
-Gang Prevention: Educate parents, schools, and communities on gangs. Gangs aren't selective, so they are prepared to pick up anyone who falls through the families crack.
-Gang Intervention programs, including those that work to create violence-free zones, establish gang summits and truces, and help to rehabilitate youth at risk, gang members/affiliates in juvenile detention and correctional facilities. Strategies share how to implement best practices, and sustain long-term gang reduction. Comprehensive approaches to gang problems are needed; such as the Comprehensive Community-Wide Approach to Gang Prevention, Intervention, and Suppression. Education, training, mentor-ship programs for youth at risk/crisis.
-Intervention programs seek to educate, and reduce the criminal activities of gangs by coaxing youth away from gangs and reducing criminality among gang members. Violence-Free Zones, a grassroots community intervention for youth and gang-related violence.
