Original Gangster's Basic Academy of Delinquency is a non-profit youth services agency.
Our mission is to provide targeted youth who are prone to gang involvement with alternatives to a gang lifestyle.
We fulfill this mission through an education program, job skills training and supervised recreational activities for high risk youth.
Our strategies are consistent with the three-pronged, balanced approach of the Idaho State Department of Juvenile Corrections.
The balanced approach emphasizes skill-building, accountability and protection of society.
The strength of our program, now in its sixth year of operations, is in providing skill-building activities while holding youth accountable for continuing their education and contributing back to the community.
Ultimately, our program helps protect our community by diverting youth from gang activity.
To successfully address gang issues in our community requires this comprehensive, balanced approach.
