High School / Young Adults - Gang Prevention

High school age youth are motivated to join a gang for the following reasons: a sense of connection and to define a sense of who they are, peer pressure, a need to protect themselves or to make money. It is important to teach youth how to avoid gangs because gang-involved youth are more likely to engage in substance abuse and high-risk behavior. The long term effects of gang involvement can be health and social consequences including school dropout, teen parenthood, unstable employment, and family problems. Provide high school students with ARISE Life skills lessons for gang prevention to help them stay away from gangs.
