The Florida Consortium of Urban Leagues’ Black on Black Crime Prevention Program was created to
motivate blacks to support, promote, participate and educate their communities on crime prevention. The
program focuses on the effects of black on black crime in black communities.
The program will present a multifaceted curriculum designed to assist and ease the transition of youth,
ages 10 – 18, from childhood to early adulthood. The program will consist of educational workshops that
address conflict resolution, peer pressure, decision making, choices, anger and aggression management,
crime prevention, drug abuse prevention and refusal skills training consistent with a value base social conforming
curriculum. The program is designed to uplift positive social behavior, improve decision making
skills, build refusal skills and, thereby, ease the transition of participating youth from childhood to early
adulthood. Each session will be approximately one (1) to two (2) hours in length, and eight (8) sessions
per quarter. Males and females will be served in separate program components.
