Over the past 25 years, the MGPTF has strategically worked to address issues of gang involvement among youth and young adults in an effort to reduce youth violence associated with gangs.   The MGPTF was established in 1991 in response to an increase in gang activity and crime. It is comprised of a broad coalition of local residents, school officials, community and faith-based organizations, local law enforcement, and city, county and state government leaders. The MGPTF brings these diverse stakeholders together and leverages each group’s expertise as part of a coordinated, interagency effort to curb gang-related activity in San José.   The work of the MGPTF is coordinated through a Continuum of Services that works across four key areas: Prevention, Intervention, Suppression and Re-entry. The MGPTF’s successes can be attributed to its ability and willingness to continually refine and develop programs and services that meet the needs of a changing community.   The MGPTF is currently recruiting to fill Youth Outreach Specialist positions in the following programs:    Safe Schools Campus Initiative (SSCI) —The program partners with 19 school districts on 82 middle and high school campuses, responding to incidents to reduce violence and maintain a safe learning environment for all youth.

Most teaching occurs in small group lessons at the program’s two studio sites, Roosevelt Community Center and Sunol Community School, where the program is an after-school activity. The program serves six to eight students at a time at each location, with a target of serving at least 150 youth per year.

At the open gym activities, service providers attend each location to provide information on accessing mental health services, life skills classes, job training, tattoo removal, record clearance, and drug and alcohol counseling. This program is a connection point that may result in connecting youth with other MGPTF programs. The YOS overseeing this program must be willing to work night hours, when the program takes place, and have excellent organizational skills to bring equipment and other supplies to the different venues, and be able to work together with staff from other MGPTF programs and non-profit organizations who attend Late Night Gym Sessions and bring youth to participate.   Clean Slate Tattoo Removal Program—This program partners with Santa Clara Valley Medical Center to assist former gang-impacted and gang-involved youth with free removal of gang-related tattoos as a barrier to future education and employment.
