The program's primary objective is prevention and is intended to immunize students against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership.

G.R.E.A.T.

lessons focus on providing life skills to students, in grades 4 through 8, to help them avoid engaging in delinquent behavior and violence to resolve problems.

The G.R.E.A.T.

Program currently has five Regional Training Centers that provide assistance to local G.R.E.A.T.

programs and support G.R.E.A.T.

Officer Training to sworn law enforcement officers.

BJA is seeking five agencies, one in each G.R.E.A.T.

Region, to host and operate a Regional Training Center (RTC).

Each RTC will promote the G.R.E.A.T.

Program by organizing, preparing for, and conducting training programs, providing technical assistance to G.R.E.A.T.

agencies within their region, and disseminating G.R.E.A.T.
