Special Notice: This session is open only to educators participating in the Regional Education Consortium. School Division ID required at check in. Pre-registration required.
Gangs are not only an urban area challenge. Gang activity crosses all ethnic, racial, socio-economic, gender, and geographic boundaries. Gangs often bring fear and violence to neighborhoods, destroy property, involve youth in crime and drive businesses out of communities. Gangs pull teens away from school and home and into a life of violence. This session will be an introduction to gang awareness, recognition, and basic history. Topics discussed will include history of gangs, gang trademarks, colors, clothing, hand signs, graffiti, gang violence, gang mentality and indicators of gang activity in your community.
