Los Angeles City Gang Reduction Youth Development Gang Intervention Services

The Mayor’s Office of Gang Reduction and Youth Development was established in 2007 to provide a comprehensive, targeted approach to reducing gang crime and violence in Los Angeles. A signature feature of this approach has been to identify the areas of the City with the highest rates of gang violence and to provide intensive prevention and intervention services to the youth in these areas. The twelve core areas identified, known as Gang Reduction and Youth Development (GRYD) Zones had rates of gang-related crime that were at least 400 percent higher than elsewhere in the City. In addition to high levels of gang crime and activity, the GRYD Zones also have extremely high truancy and school drop-out rates, poverty levels, and unemployment. SEA, Inc. provides Community-Based Gang Intervention and Case Management Services along with wrap around services to youth between the ages of 14 to 25 in five of the twelve GRYD Zones:
