Youth Crime Prevention and Intervention (YCPI) Program

The Youth Crime Prevention and Intervention program is available to Leon County school-age students in both the public and private sector school systems. These programs target at risk youths by providing workshops and group training sessions to address economical, educational, personal, and social issues affecting disadvantaged youths. These activities are usually held five (5) days a week in the schools and at community recreation/meeting centers city-wide and consist of a minimum of ten (10) students per session. Topics covered in these sessions include:
  • Social Responsibility /Character Building
  • Drug and Gang Activity Resistance
  • Teen Trafficking
  • Anger Management
  • Employability Skills; and
  • Community Bridge Building

The YCPI program also offers a training and workshop component for young adults and parents ages 19-35. The goal of this component is to provide young adults and parents with tools to help mitigate social deficits that contribute to systemic economic deprivation and asocial behaviors. The workshops and training sessions address areas to reinforce coping skills amid personal and financial difficulties to facilitate the maintenance of stability for themselves and/or their families:

  • Parenting Skills
  • Employability Skills
