Greg Johnson
Intervention Specialist, Caught in the Crossfire

gjohnson@youthalive.org | (510) 594-2588 x313

Greg Johnson works with Youth ALIVE!’s Caught in the Crossfire program to support youth in the immediate aftermath of a violent injury and beyond. Greg was born and raised in Oakland. He says it is the trauma of being assaulted, or of growing up amidst the violence, that leads to more violence, sometimes in the form of retaliation. He works to connect his clients with services, and offes mentorship. Before coming to Youth ALIVE!, Greg worked as a case manager supporting Oakland youth being released from Alameda County Juvenile Justice Center. He calls East Oakland home and loves to see his young clients serve as “neighborhood ambassadors” of change for their entire families and communities.
