In this article Sarah van Gelder interviews John Calhoun – executive director of the National Crime Prevention Council, and founder and former director of the Justice Resource Institute – to talk about ways to engage young people and to rebuild communities to prevent crime. Their discussion ranges over reasons for youths being at risk, contemporary social conditions affecting young people, needs that youths are trying to meet through drugs and gangs, youths getting involved in their communities, and the need for adults to be involved in the lives of young people.
