Addressing the Needs of At-Risk Youth to Promote Resilient Communities

Organization Name: 
Thu 15 Mar 2018 to Tue 20 Mar 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.
