About the GREAT Program
The GREAT Program is a school-based, officer-instructed classroom curriculum program. With prevention as its primary objective, the program is intended to be an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership.
GREAT has developed partnerships with nationally recognized organizations, such as the Boys & Girls Clubs of America
and the National Association of Police Athletic/Activities Leagues
. These partnerships encourage positive relationships among the community, parents, schools, and law enforcement officers.
Lessons focus on providing life skills to students to help them avoid using delinquent behavior and violence to solve problems. The program also offers a continuum of components for students and their families.
