The objective of the GPS was to reduce the risk of gang involvement among at-risk youth. Specifically, the program aimed to:

 

  • Increase awareness of consequences of gang involvement
  • Encourage youth to adopt a less positive attitude toward gangs
  • Increase motivation to participate in pro-social behaviours
  • Decrease risk factors that contribute to interest in gang activity
  • Increase protective factors that contribute to youth's interest in pro-social activity

 

 

GPS was based on a wraparound approach. Key elements of the program included being assigned a coach, developing a case management plan, meeting with the coach for at least one hour per month for the first three months, and participating in at least one hour of programming activities each week for a defined three month period.
