Operation Peacekeeper Outreach Workers are street-wise men and women trained in:
- conflict resolution,
- community organizing,
- mentoring, and
- case management.
They work in schools and neighborhoods, wherever young people at risk of violence are. Workers respond to areas where violent crimes have occurred to talk with the youth and their families to prevent retaliations.
Operation Peacekeeper builds the bridge between youth, young adults, and their families with a collaboration of community-based and faith-based organizations, as well as government agencies.

Operation Peacekeeper uses outreach workers in collaboration with government, community-based and faith-based organizations to:
- Reduce gang-related violence in Stockton,
- Reach out to gang-related youth and young adults, and
- Provide resources for youth to abstain from a gang lifestyle and become productive members of society.
Operation Peacekeeper envisions mentoring youth and young adults with the highest risk of gang involvement, particularly serious gun-related violence, and provide positive alternatives for a healthier, non-violent lifestyle.
The Operation Peacekeeper Gang Outreach Program has a high local profile since 1998 and plays a key role in local efforts to reduce gang homicides. The program has evolved into a comprehensive effort where youth are offered both a mentor and a variety of resources.
Outreach Workers are available 24/7 for youth, young adults, and their families.
In 2010 Operation Peacekeeper received two prestigious awards:
- League of California Cities Helen Putnam Award for Excellence
- Cities and the Counties and Schools Partnership Award
