This thesis explores gang intervention programs within the city of Cleveland and the surrounding areas. A comparison will be drawn between Cleveland intervention programs and the intervention programs contained in several other cities to find the best solutions to ending youth gangs. Interviews were conducted with four sources from the Cleveland area to gain a better understanding of their individual efforts as well as the programs they are involved with. Cleveland's quick action when the problem first arose has enabled them to become well involved with all aspects of intervention. With limited funds these sources have developed very strong programs that are building for the future. With an increase in funds more programs can focus on rehabilitation, with an economic push necessary for the eventual elimination of these youth gangs.
