Gang Outreach

Gang Outreach

The Gang Outreach program is a unique program that involves highly specialized outreach workers spending time on the streets, in parks, and in other “gang-involved hot spots” around the city of Portland in order to engage current gang members in motivational change-talk conversations.  The Gang Outreach program utilizes culturally-specific skills to meet youth where they are at, in order to provide information and connection to educational and job resources, while guiding youth in healthy decision making.
