IGNITE Youth Alliance is a mentoring program administered by the Roundtable of St. Lucie County in partnership with more than 30 other community partner agencies, providing services and opportunities for youth involved in or at high risk for being involved in gangs, high-risk street activities and community violence. Our strategies include intervention, prevention and suppression activities to address violence in St. Lucie County.
IGNITE Youth Alliance is based on a national anti-violence model developed by the United States Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) and supported by the National Gang Center. The goal of the program is to reduce gang-related crime, community violence and victimization in St. Lucie County by providing alternatives and opportunities for youth. The program is voluntary and there is no cost for participants.
IGNITE Youth Alliance serves youth (males and females) ages 6-18 that are involved in or at risk for involvement in high-risk street activity and gangs.
We provide the following services and opportunities:
