Gang Resistance & Education Training for Parents

By partnering with Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office, parents of students currently in the Gang Resistance and Education Training (GREAT) program were invited to attend an informational session. Parents were educated on facts about gangs, the reasons why young people join gangs, and how to recognize gang membership or affiliation. The facilitator Marcia of the Palm Beach County Sheriff Office also educated parents on what role as parents they can play to combat gangs. Parents were granted the opportunity to ask questions pertaining to gangs.
