Planning a Successful Crime Prevention Project. The Success Cycle: Steps for Success.
Youth in Action Bulletin, n1 Apr 1998
This bulletin is designed as a how-to-do-it workbook and guide to help young people plan and implement crime prevention projects to make their communities safer and healthier by using a five-step Success Cycle. Some examples of programs around the country provide a starter list to show the sorts of programs young people can develop. A wide variety of programs is possible, from victim and witness assistance programs to conflict resolution and mediation. The Success Cycle depends on the following steps: (1) assessing the community's needs; (2) planning a successful project; (3) lining up resources; (4) acting on the plan; and (5) nurturing, monitoring, and evaluating the project. Resource organizations for additional help are listed, and worksheets corresponding to each of the cycle's steps are provided. (SLD)
