Addressing the Needs of At-Risk Youth to Promote Resilient Communities
March 15, 2018 - March 20, 2018
10 visitors from the Western Hemisphere will be coming to make professional connections in San Diego exploring primary prevention programs for at-risk youth, including family support, after school activities, life skills, job training, truancy, and dropout prevention. They will be exploring the power of public-private partnerships by looking at the efforts of state and local governments, schools, community-based organizations and faith-based groups to identify, disrupt, and address behaviors that can lead to delinquency and gang involvement. The visitors will highlight support services for at risk, delinquent and gang-involved youth and their families to improve parenting and encourage positive choices. They will be examining a range of re-entry programs for youth who have recently been released from incarceration.
