The Center on Culture, Immigration, and Youth Violence Prevention (the Center) was a project of the Institute for the Study of Societal Issues, the National Council on Crime and Delinquency, the University of California, Berkeley’s School of Law (Boalt Hall), and the University of California, San Francisco. The Center was one of eight Academic Centers for Excellence nationwide funded by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to address youth violence from 2005-2011.

Other Center partners included researchers from local institutions, community organizations, and state, local, and federal agencies.

The Center’s goal was to reduce youth violence, especially among Asian/Pacific Islander (API) and Latino immigrant populations in Oakland, California.



The Center is now closed. We hope this website will provide you with useful resources. Thank you for visiting.
