Gun Violence Among Chicago School Age Youth - Research
From the web site: "This report summarizes the analysis of a variety of administrative data and surveys, as well as interviews and focus groups that the Crime Lab has conducted with people and organizations all over Chicago, to answer three key questions:

* Who are the youth involved with gun violence in Chicago as victims or/as perpetrators? It is well known that low-income, gang-involved young minority males are vastly over represented as both victims and offenders of gun violence. Our new research for this report highlights several additional contributing factors—such as alcohol use, mental health problems, and perhaps particularly school failure—which seem to be underutilized targets for intervention. And while many people despair that nothing can be done to keep guns away from youth in a country with over 250 million guns in circulation, our research—perhaps surprisingly—argues that there are productive opportunities for disrupting youth access to guns.

* When do we lose these youth? At some level, the answer flows back to the first five years of life. But our analysis suggests that another critical turning point seems to occur as children approach middle school age, when both arrest and dropout rates begin to increase. Another important lesson from our analysis is that most “criminal careers” are relatively brief, so that no youth is ever really "lost." These findings taken together suggest we should be thinking about interventions that both start early (as young as age 10) and help young people navigate the highest-risk years, which may run through the early 20s.

* What can we do about the youth gun violence problem? Our data analysis suggests the value of what we call focused prevention, which involves the strategic use of resources to prevent youth gun violence from happening,rather than just addressing the problem after the fact. Our research, together with a growing body of evidence from psychology and behavioral economics, suggests that one way to prevent youth gun violence is to make the incentives that youth face to engage in pro-social activities (particularly schooling) and avoid risky behaviors (such as gun involvement) more swift, certain, and salient."

Horizons Atlanta - transformational, community-centered, summer learning program
From the web site: "When a student enrolls in Horizons Atlanta the summer after Kindergarten, he or she joins a learning community that extends year-round, with a signature six-week summer intensive through 8th grade. Horizons Atlanta students, all of whom are free-or-reduced-lunch qualified, come from public schools, and are in need of academic support. By design, roughly 2/3 of students perform below grade level when they first enroll. And, because we make a long-term commitment to our families, siblings of enrolled students receive admissions preference when they are of eligible age to apply. Our programs are physically located within or geographically near communities and public schools in need. For most programs, we provide daily bus transportation to and from our site, helping to mitigate any safety concerns for students who reside outside of walking distance to our program sites. We also strive for our programs to be as closely located to their feeder public schools as possible so as to enhance the collaborative nature of our work and further our understanding and connection to the home communities of our students." NOTE: The Atlanta program is part of a national network of Horizons programs in different cities, including Chicago
