Gang intervention course for non-profits and citizens


Want to learn more about how to stop gangs and prevent young people from joining? The Columbia Heights Shaw Family Support Cooperative, which does a lot of great work with youth, is holding a training for their Metropolitan Regional Gang Intervention Certification Graduation Program. 


It's Thursday, May 3rd from 10 AM until 1 PM at the Silver Spring Civic Center Main Ballroom, 1 Veterans Plaza, Silver Spring, Maryland 20910. 

Here's more about it:
Intervention workers have participated in a first of its kind gang intervention certification program that will help to set the standard for gang intervention work in the region. We believe this training will help to not only professionalize gang intervention work but also enhance our intervention efforts in the region. The training has bought together the Columbia Heights Shaw Family Support Collaborative, Montgomery County Street Outreach Network and the Prince Georges County Office of Public Safety. Please come out and support.
Sounds like a great program.
