  • The Little Village Gang Violence Reduction Project in Chicago


  • This book is about the Little Village Gang Violence Reduction Project, which was based on the idea that the gang problem is defined not only by the delinquent or criminal behaviors of gangs and gang members but also by what the community institutions do or do not do to prevent and control the problem. Certain youth and the community together - including its component parts, particularly family, police, schools, youth agencies, probation, churches and neighborhood organizations and political administrations as well as larger social, economic and cultural factors - are responsible for the creation and intensification of the problem. The model proposes that a special structure of these agencies and community groups must be developed to focus and implement strategies toward target youth in gang-problem communities.
