Resource Title: Teens, Crime, and the Community
Description: Teens, Crime, and the Community (TCC) is NCPC's national initiative to get teens involved in crime prevention to make themselves safer and their communities stronger. "Community Works", the TCC curriculum, uses education and action to teach youth about their chances of victimization and what they can do about it.
