The TEXSYN Project is implemented by the Texas Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs in more than 200 program sites statewide. Some 2,700 at-risk juvenile’s, ages 8 through 17, are served annually. All youth served exhibit one or more characteristics that place them at risk of being referred to the juvenile justice system in their local communities, including, but not limited to, the absence or inadequacy of positive adult role models and/or inadequate adult supervision during non-school hours; the presence of anti-social behaviors at home, in school settings, and/or in the community; experimentation with tobacco, alcohol, or other illegal drugs; sexual experimentation inappropriate for age; and a demonstrated lack of respect for authority figures and/or violation of communities’ standards for youth behavior.
