The Recipient will organize and host a 2 ½ day conference which will bring together representatives from effective working programs to share ideas and develop an inter-provincial strategy for youth in the criminal justice system who are gang involved or at risk of gang involvement. The conference will identify what is working elsewhere, and also raise awareness of resources that are available and can be accessed by these youth. The conference will focus primarily on Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba given the common issues, close proximity and demographics. The target group for this conference will be executive directors, coordinators and front line workers from various gang prevention and intervention programs, police and other interested stakeholders. The conference will take place in Regina, Saskatchewan in March 2010.
