Anti-Gang Strategies and Interventions

by Marion on September 13th, 2010

This is an article out of Australia about youth gangs. Some interesting reading here, some of which includes characteristics for joining and leaving gangs (page 13/14). In looking at these, it is easy to make the case as to how youth development programs – if they are frequent, available and no/low cost – can be great diversions to youth entering the gang culture. Page 38 – 42 also specifically references the need for youth facilities whether it is stand alone or with designated youth space which is part of a community centre (this is one of the Youth Friendly Community Recognition Program criteria too).
