Upcoming Speaker at the Greenwich Boys and Girls Club March 24th

I've been working with groups to improve the lives of youth in my part of the world. To understand what needs to be done, sometimes it's necessary to learn about the forces that work against kids having a happy, safe growing environment. The following is just such an opportunity. What is it that drives a young person to join a gang? What can we in the community do to give kids another choice? This is even more relevant as the reports of a nationwide increase in gang violence is in the news.
