Big safety Campaign in Chicago uses wide-scale mentoring to help teens reduce reactivity
from Youth Today
A major public safety campaign designed to cut crime in Chicago's most violent neighborhoods relies heavily on mentoring and group work with teens. Mayor Rahm Emmanuel announced the campaign earlier this fall, saying the city would add about 1,000 law enforcement officers and beef up police training and technology. But the effort also includes a $36 million public-private initiative to expand the mentoring program Becoming a Man to 7,200 boys and expand a smaller program for girls, Working on Womanhood, to 1,300 girls.
