County nets $500K from state for at-risk youth

Riverside County has secured $500,000 to curb gang violence by providing job training to at-risk youth.

The funding was part of $4.8 million in state grants announced Wednesday.

Combined, they will target 900 at-risk youth in eight California counties.

“We are glad to receive these funds from the state,” Tom Freeman, spokesman for Riverside County’s Economic Development Agency, said in an email Wednesday.

“We will utilize them to help at-risk youth in the Coachella Valley and remainder of the county. This will serve as a strong crime deterrent and we will make every effort to deter our young men and women from affiliating with gangs.”

The state grants were divided among programs that expand job training and those that create what the state calls “career pathway partnerships.”
