Our gang prevention and gang intervention resources have been used in hundreds of schools and alternative schools nationwide.
For example, the Governor of New Jersey provided the elementary and sixth grade versions of the core Phoenix Curriculum
gang prevention program to 100 schools (every school in the cities of Newark, Trenton, and Camden). These materials are suitable for day reporting programs.
As we provide more than 100 gang intervention and gang prevention program resources, alternative school programs for gang prevention and gang intervention can be tailored to address specific
populations and needs:
- the age and grade of the students (we provide four different levels of curriculum: Elementary school, Sixth Grade, Middle School, and High School) determines whether
they are for gang prevention or gang intervention (see the difference); all materials are provided in high-interest, easy-reading format.
- the degree of need and intensity (we provide each of the above versions in 25-lesson and 50-lesson versions). High risk students or high risk schools should use the more intensive curriculum for example. We also provide dozens of curriculum options for school-based gang intervention.
- teacher-ready lesson plans for all lessons. We can also provide assistance linking the curriculum to your state core curriculum competency standards for life skills, language arts, and health. The Phoenix Gang Intervention resources were accepted for Carnegie High School credits by the New Jersey State Department of Education, for example.
