|Mission||Our mission is to provide youth with support for underlying emotional needs, advocacy, group interaction, and exposure to new activities and positive role models.|
ELEMENTS is an all-inclusive program within the New Hanover County Sheriff’s Office Gang Task Force designed to implement a combination of education, prevention, intervention, and diversion strategies to address the many factors that cause and sustain youth violence.
We work directly with youth, their family, school personnel, law enforcement, and the community to help prevent youth violence. Some of the methods we use include: impulse control, conflict resolution, behavior modification, problem solving, teaching social and coping skills, peer mediation, tutoring, extra-curricular activities, improving family communication and increasing family activities, educating parents, teaching effective discipline in the homes, helping reduce association with delinquent peers, helping build a positive relationships, providing exposure to new activities, and providing character building lessons.
