GANG VIOLENCE PREVENTION SERVICES

AGENCY VITAE

The "California Gang Violence Prevention Services" agency intends to expose the raw truths to the youths in regards to the unspoken flip side of the coin that most criminals and gang members don't like talking about. The harsh and brutal realities of prison life. The ganglands trickery and deceptive recruiting tactics, the many shrewd forms of manipulations and utilizations of the young and uniformed, the deadly back stabbings, and all the insane, inhumane prison codes of conduct that clearly promotes self-degradation, humiliation, and death. Most importantly, the "CGVPS" program intends to provide the youths with an in-depth-understandings of just how devastating the effect that criminal behavior has upon our own immediate families.

With all intents and purposes, the "CGVPS" program hopes to convey to the youths, that no matter how unfortunately their past mistakes may be, they each have an opportunity now to make the necessary alterations in their lives, insofar as to change their futures for the best. Otherwise, they'll know exactly what awaits them.

Of course, no one can rehabilitate another person. Each person must do that for his/her self. But everyone needs sound advice, proper direction, and guidance along the way. The "CGVPS" program can and will provide this desperately needed guidance and inspiration to the youths of today, by way of offering alternatives to their current self-destructive lifestyles and other avenues to the insight and dignity inherent in genuine rehabilitation.
