My capstone project is focused on conducting formative research for developing a case management protocol to reduce recidivism in youths aged 13 to 16. This formative research will serve as a basis for Street Addiction Institute Inc.’s request for proposal (RFP) to Onondaga County Department of Justice. As Street Addiction Institute Inc. is currently in the process of applying for funding at the federal and county levels, the formative research I conducted by integrating knowledge obtained from literature, expertise of community leaders and professionals, and understanding of youth’s specific characteristics, needs, and risks, will inform the development of a case management protocol executed by Street Addiction Institute Inc. This case management program will seek to reduce youth recidivism rate by 20% in Syracuse, New York. In doing so, we hope to affect change concerning gang and neighborhood violence by ameliorating traumatic stress for individuals and communities.
