Bronx Osborne Gun Accountability and Prevention (BOGAP) Program

Osborne has partnered with the District Attorney’s Office to create the Bronx Osborne Gun Accountability and Prevention (BOGAP) program, offering young people charged with carrying guns – often to protect themselves or at the request of others – an alternative to prison. The program builds on our experience pairing trauma services, cognitive behavioral therapy, and credible messenger transformative mentoring to address the realities faced by young adults at the center of gun violence in the Bronx and support them in finding options for problem-solving in difficult situations.

Open to young adults ages 16-24 (with flexibility up to age 30), BOGAP is a yearlong, intensive program designed to create lasting transformations of attitudes and beliefs, and opportunities for living productively and in safety. BOGAP offers new modes of thinking, opportunities for accountability, and access to training toward career paths and living-wage employment and supportive services that are the building blocks for a future free of violence.
