Breaking the Cycle of Gang and Youth Violence - The Safe and Thriving Communities Planning and Collaboration Program

More than just terrifying, being exposed to violence as a child can be life-altering. Research in neuroscience indicates that early trauma increases the neural connections in our brains associated with fear, anxiety, and impulsiveness. That is why trauma-informed intervention is one critical component in the Safe and Thriving Communities program from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP). Taking a systemic, multifaceted approach to curbing youth and gang violence, this grant seeks to increase a community's capacity to: enhance public safety, reduce youth offending and victimization, and help heal collective, historical and individual trauma in order to break the cycle of destruction.
