Gang Awareness Seminar Series
Madre 13, Red Dragons, Decepticons, Latin Kings... The names of youth gangs elicit strong, sometimes exciting images: baggy clothing, colors, tattoos, hand gestures, graffiti, guns. Although once confined to urban landscapes, these images and the gangs that create them are migrating. Gang-related incidents, from graffiti to drive-by shootings, are being reported across the country in urban, and now suburban and rural areas. Gang violence doesn't just affect gang members, as bad as that might be. It affects whole communities: families of gang members, innocent bystanders, people who are afraid to go out where gangs fight each other.

As gangs move into new areas, they also move into locations that were traditionally considered "neutral zones," such as schools and malls. It is estimated that more than 650,00 teenagers are involved in gangs. The Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP) has determined that initiatives aimed at educating young teenagers about gangs are the best forms of prevention.

UMAATC offers 3 Specialty Gang Seminars

Teen Gangs - Being a Part of the Solution
This program is presented in an assembly format to students ages 12 and up and is approximately 45 minutes in length. It is a straight forward, thought provoking, and realistic look at the dangers and consequences of gang involvement, it encourages the "good" kids to become a part of the solution and resolve conflicts without violence.

What they are saying...

Jezreal Orozco, age 13 " Outstanding, it was perfect, it was not boring.  It was fun and entertaining!"

What a Parent Needs to Know about Teen Gangs
This program is recommended to be held in the evening following the student presentations. It has been designed as a "wake-up" call for parents and focuses on community solutions. It is ninety minutes in length and has been modified from the in-service adults-only program detailed below to allow the kids age 12 and up to participate with their parents. Without exception, the parents are quite shocked when they discover just how much the kids know, whether they are involved in youth gang activity or not. The programs addresses the warning signs and identifiers and showcases programs which are successful in other communities.

What they are saying...

Dora Orozco "I learned about things I had no clue existed
in our community!  I would definitely recommend that all parents of teenagers or pre-teens attend this seminar."

The Professional Guide to Street Gang Awareness
This in-service training program for adults only is available to educators, counselors, law enforcement and others who have an interest in or deal directly with youth. Topics for discussion will include history and identification of gang sets, profiling gang recruits, gang recruiting practices, hand signs, graffiti interpretation and possible community solutions. This program can be tailored to fit your time constraints, but normally lasts 4 hours.

What they are saying...
Dr. Carol Wheeler-Liston "I am a substitute educator.  As such I am very concerned that the public schools do not train their substitute educators on how to identify gang related activities i.e. drawings, clothing, hairstyles, and hand signs to name a few.  However, we are to take disciplinary actions if we observe any gang related activities (which we do not know how to identify).  I am also concerned that substitute educators and faculty are not being backed up by administration when we do attempt to discipline students who exhibit these behaviors.  I attended this seminar so that I could learn what the gang related activities are.  This seminar was very informative and very helpful to me in my professional career.  I recommend that all educational professionals attend this or a similar program."
