Project BUILD Gang Intervention Program
Project BUILD is a multi-disciplinary gang prevention and intervention program that provides coordinated case management and services to youth and young adults between the ages of 14 and 21 who are at high risk of gang involvement. Project BUILD is based in the Durham County Department of Public Health, and is a joint project of Durham County and the City of Durham.
Project BUILD’s street outreach workers work one-on-one with young people to model pro-social behavior, provide behavior coaching, support positive decision-making, encourage education and employment success, and support involvement in pro-social activities.
Services for Project BUILD clients are coordinated by a team of professionals representing education, social services, mental health, substance abuse, and criminal justice agencies.
