UNDERSTANDING YOUTH AND GANGS

A PARENTS RESOURCE

After years of research and collaboration between the Kwantlen Polytechnic University Acting Together – Community University Research Alliance (AT-CURA), various police agencies, and community partners across British Columbia, prevention methods have been developed and implemented throughout the province to discourage youth from joining gangs and to inform parents and the public of warning signs.

The Combined Forces Special Enforcement Unit of BC (CFSEU-BC), in partnership with the AT-CURA Project (www.actingtogether.ca) and the South Asian Community Coalition Against Youth Violence (SACCAYV) is making available a new handbook titled Understanding Youth and Gangs – A Parent Resource.

The Understanding Youth and Gangs booklet will be beneficial to parents by helping them to learn and recognize the signs of potential gang involvement in their children, how to prevent them from getting involved with gangs, and to guide children back on a positive path and create resiliency.

The booklet is primarily meant to be a resource to parents and focuses on dial-a-doping as a main entry point for many youth who enter gangs or organized criminal activity. This booklet will prove valuable to police officers, teachers, community workers, and others and will help them take the important first steps towards playing a significant role in understanding the issue of gangs and recognizing warning signs in youth and young adults.
