The Rural Youth Crime Prevention Program (RYCPP) is a collaborative effort between the YMCA of Honolulu and the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii to provide youth ages 10 through 17 years with programs after school hours that are designed to prevent, reduce, or eliminate antisocial behaviors among adolescents by increasing their protective factors and decreasing related risk factors. Activities will focus on middle school aged youth. The RYCPP proposes to implement an after-school, facility-based, and mobile outreach program incorporating a comprehensive strategy that includes an after school program and a more structured, curriculum focused 12-week program.
