The Youth Initiatives Programs of NVFS utilize a highly effective, trauma-informed, culturally relevant service model to provide multi-modal “neighborhood based-school connected” services designed to ensure that at-risk youth and families are able to thrive in their chosen communities; succeed academically and socially; and that the communities themselves are equipped to prevent future community and family violence.
The IPE (Intervention, Prevention and Education) Program of NVFS is an asset development intervention designed to increase the protective factors that ensure that gang involved youth, and youth at risk for gang involvement, have increased abilities to resist the destructiveness of gang involvement. The program strives to ensure that parents of at-risk youth and community members are able to provide the support and structure needed to keep these vulnerable youth safe from the negative influence of gangs. IPE serves youth ages 10-21 and their families.
The Case Manager will work with referred youths’ parents or guardians to increase effective communication and appropriate limit-setting, provide education about the signs of gang involvement or other negative behaviors, and provide information about the ways in which families can support their children so that they are less vulnerable to gang involvement and other unhealthy relationships. Referrals for any needed services are provided, ensuring that families are connected to a supportive network and formal and informal resources in their community.
The Case Manager will provide short-term, therapeutic case management services and services to address their unique gang-intervention (for example safety planning on how to leave a gang safely, or refusal and resistance skills training to resist recruitment efforts).
