Community Awareness

Community Education is provided through speaking engagements to civic organizations, churches, schools, and businesses. Open Door provides educational information for the general public, making at least two presentations per week. The purpose of this program is to increase the awareness of gang activity and solicit assistance in prevention. Presentations made to schools and other youth groups are designed to reduce gang recruitment activities. Former gang members volunteer their time to participate in these prevention activities. One of the goals of this program is to give younger children the information and tools they need to resist the pressures to join gangs and participation in drug-related activities.

Communities experiencing youth gang issues can access our consultation services. These services will assist and educate the community on understanding the issues they are confronting while accessing available prevention resources.
