Gang Prevention Through Targeted Outreach (GPTTO)
The Boys and Girls Clubs of Hudson County’s Gang Prevention Program is designed to help young people between the ages of 13 through 18 stay away from gang behavior and join positive Club activities. The Club provides structure and support that might otherwise be sought out in the streets. Youth have the opportunity to develop and enhance their skills and experiences by participating in groups which promote leadership, life skills, and career pathways. In addition to having fun, learning and building relationships, individuals who successfully complete the program may be given the opportunity to use their newly-acquired skills in paid internships at the Club.
Youth Achievement Center
We recognize that some elementary and middle school students need individualized programs to help them improve their behavior whether it’s at home, in school or in social/recreational settings. The Boys & Girls Clubs of Hudson County has provided a counseling program focusing on positive reinforcement in both Clubs since 1984.
