Gangs: myths, reality, and the Best Way to Advocate for Youth Involved

February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

In-Service Training
Gangs: myths, reality, and the Best Way to Advocate for Youth Involved
When: February 25, 2022 from 12 pm to 2 pm

This workshop will provide an overview of working with vulnerable youth populations affected by “community gang violence.” Taking a Holistic Ecological perspective in working with vulnerable youth populations identified as gang-involved, gang-affiliated youth, theories will be examined to best understand the culture of gang youth. The historical context of street socializing youth residing in urban cities such as Los Angeles will be explored. Current interventions and policies designed to address gang youth will be reviewed. By exploring potential root causes of street socializing youth, we can critically develop practices that address challenges for communities immersed in the cycle of community gang violence through empowerment models of practice.

Facilitator: Robert Hernandez, DSW, Professor @ University of Southern California
