More Information
YouTurn is a newly established organization- May 26, 2016

YouTurn is committed to using evidence-based strategies of suppression, intervention and prevention to deter gangs and violence. We serve adolescents and young adults, 12 to 24 years of age residing in the northeast and southeast sectors of Douglas County in Omaha, Nebraska that are in gangs or are at-risk for gangs, violence and other activities that negatively impact their opportunity for success.

YouTurn believes that effectively reaching adolescents and young adults requires a collaborative effort between youth, parents/guardians, schools, community-based service providers, law enforcement and other key community stakeholders.

YouTurn creates opportunities for youth to “break the cycle” of violence by:

Helping adolescents and young adults, involved in gangs and those at-risk for gang involvement, seek positive alternatives to gangs and violence; and

Reducing the costly impact of gangs and violence in our neighborhoods and schools.
