Gangs, Cliques, and Crews: Understanding Gangs and Youth

About the Course

Gang Culture is more popular than ever. Youth of all socio-economic and racial/ethnic groups are emulating the behaviors, ideology, and pose of the most notorious national street gangs from LA and Chicago. The mass media via Hip Hop music, video games, movies and music videos has glamorized the culture such that youth have found its allure mesmerizing. This workshop explores the proliferation of gang culture among the spectrum of members from hardcore members to “posers” trying to gain popularity by pretending to be members of a gang. Also discussed are reasons why kids join gangs, the profile of gang members, the pathos of gangs, and prevention strategies to keep kids out of gangs.
