Street Smarts Initiative

The Boston Management Consortium, a public-private partnership addressing key city issues, working closely with the Office of the Mayor, Boston Police Department, Boston Public Schools, Streetworker Program of Boston Community Centers, Citizens for Safety, the Suffolk County District Attorney’s office, neighborhood organizations and a growing number of area businesses, has formed a unique partnership to coordinate a broad-based, multi-faceted program called the Street Smarts Initiative.

Building on the three principles of neighborhood policing--partnership, problem-solving and prevention--the programs take a holistic approach to violence prevention among youth in Boston.

The Street Smarts Initiative includes a Gun Buyback Program, a Multi-Media Arts Contest, The Peace League and Street Smarts Conflict Resolution Training.
