The Santa Rosa Mayor's Gang Prevention Task Force is a collaborative effort involving private citizens; city, county, and state government; local community-based organizations; schools, parents, faith based community, and local law enforcement. The focus of this work is to intervene in the lives of youth to provide positive socialization opportunities as alternative to criminal involvement and to deter them from other maladaptive behaviors.
This plan combines the latest research on successful approaches to healthy youth development with a strategy to provide more prevention and intervention services to gang-involved and disconnected youth. By committing to supporting Santa Rosa's youth, the community is sending a clear message of support for youth to stay in school, reconnect with their families and communities enjoy a supportive and healthy environment to learn and grow, and engage in pro-social behaviors. Ultimately we envision youth who maintain a sense of responsibility for their actions with accountability to themselves and others.
