Crossroads: Annual Gang Prevention Summit
Jan 31, 2016
8:30 am - 3:00 pm
Boys & Girls Club Salinas
RSVP requested but not required: [email protected]
Based on the overwhelming success last year, we invite you to join us in our 2nd Annual Gang Prevention Summit. Boys & Girls Clubs of Monterey County will present 8 panelists who will share their personal stories with you. These panelists were raised in situations where gang violence was a way of life, drugs readily available, and crime a common occurrence. Some of our panelists will talk about how they navigated successfully through these challenges without engaging in gangs. Other panelists will talk about how and why they became part of a gang, their challenges, and how they ultimately overcame them. You will hear about the CROSSROADS in their lives where they made choices to take either path. Teens will learn how to make good choices, and adults will learn how to support our youth at their CROSSROADS. You will leave knowing how to make a difference in our community.
