Preventing Youth Violence


EBAYC’s Street Team provides intensive support to 100 youth, primarily ages 15 to 18, who are on court-ordered probation. The Street Team provides intensive case management; facilitates therapeutic activity groups; and places youth in internships. We work with each youth until he or she successfully exits probation and is on a solid path toward self-sufficiency.

Recidivism among young people who participate in EBAYC is reduced by over 50%. Young people also demonstrate improved school attendance, decreased school suspensions, and earn early dismissals from court-ordered probation as a result of their participation.
