The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant to implement a gang prevention program for youth in the City of Santa Rosa, California. The objective is to provide a free year-long baseball program for at least 60 at-risk youth in three areas known to be heavily affected by gang activity. Youth are expected to form positive relationships with staff, which will deter them from gang involvement. The adult supervision and positive relationships formed are expected to result in increased pro-social activities and favorable attitudes toward the police, and decreased risk-seeking behaviors.
The City of Santa Rosa's Measure 0 funding was viewed as the best choice for the grant. The proposed program shares the same mission as Measure 0, which is to prevent gang membership and reduce gang crimes in the City of Santa Rosa.
