What can educators do?
– Do not live in denial.

– Be non-judgemental.

– Learn about the gang issue.

– Treat all students equally.

– Refer gang members or associates to in-school support staff.

– Understand that gang membership happens for many reasons: multi-generational, protection, income producing, territorial, etc.

– If you are not comfortable discussing gang issues with students, refer them to someone who is.

– Train staff to understand and work with gang members, as they are members of the entire student body.

– Work with gang leaders to create “sacred ground” at school.

– Communicate with your staff about gang issues that happen on your campus and steps that are being taken to address it.

– Encourage gang involved youth to explore other options for making money, being with friends, and achieving their goals.
