reNOUNce deNOUNce Gang Intervention Program is a 10-week intensive Gang and gun violence prevention and intervention cognitive behavioral program designed to help decrease crime and behavioral issues within Northeast Ohio. Our target audience is proven-risk and at-risk youth from ages 11 to 25 years old who are gang members, who carry weapons, and who engage in violent activities. Our mission is to continue to help change many of our youth's way of thinking about how being involved in gang activity can affect their responsibilities to their families, communities, and to themselves.
The ReNOUNce DeNOUNce Gang Intervention Program targets the increased gang and gun violence in the city of Cleveland and surrounding suburbs. We offer a solution by actively seeking out and recruiting youth who are in gangs or are displaying behavioral issues to join our program. Our goal is to show them a way to a healthy nonviolent lifestyle and opportunities for success.
Our organization has been working to save youth and combat gang and gun violence since 2014. We have graduated more than 700 students from our cognitive-based program with over a 90% success rate. Our reach has extended to thousands of students through many local school districts by way of seminars, community outreach, and juvenile detention centers. Our program has a proven success rate in helping reduce violent crime and recidivism. We use a proven and effective cognitive behavioral-based intensive gun and gang violence prevention and intervention program. We provide wrap-around services, transportation, meals after class, hygiene kits, clothing, and other resources to our youth and their families. We have a Community Assist Team that we deploy when violence occurs and that checks up on area "hot spots" in the city that have had large spikes in gun and gang violence. We also provide community pop-up events where we provide free food, and covid 19 relief supplies.
