Gang Awareness Training

Wednesday, April 27th
6 to 7:30 pm
1111 Garden Street
RSVP to your case manager
by Monday, April 25th

Join Ed Cue, a knowledgeable resource on local gangs, as he walks us through a cultural understanding of gangs, their impact on the neighborhoods, and how you can be a positive influence in your mentee's life so they do not feel the need to personally get caught up in gangs.

Some youth join gangs because they desire to feel like they belong, to feel like their skills and talents are appreciated. You, as a mentor, can be the person who helps a youth develop their skills in a positive way. You can tell them how much you care about them and who they become. You can be the voice that pops into their head when they think about whether or not something is right or wrong. You can take away the appeal of a gang.

Join us for this informative and engaging workshop. If you have questions you would like Ed to answer, please inform your case manager.

Light snacks and refreshments will be available courtesy of the Mentor Program.
