Purpose: Breaking the Cycle is modeled after the Canadian Training Institute's successful program of the same name. This pilot will run for 24 months over 3 fiscal years. The program directly addresses the issues of gang involvement at two levels. The primary level assists gang-involved youth and those on the periphery of gang involvement to make a positive behaviour change through the development of pro-social, leadership and employability skills. The secondary level of success is accomplished as these youth take their message to youth in the larger community about the "perils of gang involvement".
