Gang Prevention

Gangs and other forms of organized street crimes are a growing and constant concern amongst African-American youth. Gangs create a “family” feeling for troubled youth that feel otherwise unaccepted in society and proceed to control the individual, often to do unimaginable illegal acts. Gangs are known to use cult-like tactics to cut off an individual from outside influences and take control of their entire life. This often leads to drug use, prostitution, beatings and other violent crimes. An effective solution to curbing this problem in your school or community is to have one of our many highly qualified anti-gang advocates share their grim personal stories and experiences as a warning to youth.
