Mission Statement

The Gang Reduction Intervention Team (G.R.I.T.) mission is to intervene in the lives of “At-risk” youth and young adults who have demonstrated the most extreme forms of delinquency. GRIT’s mission is achieved by providing job training and placement, mentoring, life skills, and classes that provoke behavior modification, thus empowering our youth to make better decisions.  Part of our mission is to increase stability in our neighborhoods and to become a catalyst that fosters safer communities.
