This paper describes Peer Culture Development, Inc., a private, non-profit agency which provides a school-based delinquency prevention program to public schools. The basic components of the program are described along with the selection and role of student leaders in the program. The dynamics of the group meetings are discussed and seven objectives that must occur if project goals are to be achieved are outlined, including reduction of negative peer pressure and increase in student involvement in school activities. Strategies to alter the subculture socialization process and to assist schools in helping students adapt to the environment are enumerated. Teacher training aspects of the program are also discussed.
