PROVIDENCE – City officials from Chicago and Newark and national experts from John Jay College for Criminal Justice will visit Providence to study the methods of the Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence, the Institute announced Thursday.

The visit will take place Thursday and Friday, Aug. 8 and 9.

During the two-day trip, visitors will examine and learn from the Institute’s street intervention program as well as its streetworker outreach program. Other programs are aimed at keeping youth out of gangs and rehabilitating former gang members.

“Youth violence is a problem for all of us. And our model can dramatically reduce violence and shootings,” Institute Executive Director Teny Gross said in a statement.

The Chicago and Newark officials will study the programs with an eye to implementing similar interventions in their own cities.
