About Steve's Public Presentations
Current Trends and Realities: Gangs, Posses, Cliques and Crews
What it does:
In this program Steve Nawojczyk gives an up-to-date perspective on current gang and clique trends and youth violence using a highly audio-visually driven presentation format.
Topics for discussion will include history and identification of gangs (past and current), profiling gang recruits, the reasons youth join gangs, gang recruiting practices many groups use as well as the basics of hand sign and graffiti interpretation.
It is a straight forward, fact-filled, thought provoking, and realistic look at the dangers and consequences of gang involvement and what can happen if a community does not respond to the issue.
Finally, the program addresses possible community solutions.
Having spoken around the country, Steve gives some insight on what programs have worked in other communities; moreover, he explains what has worked in North Little Rock, AR where he is the city’s Director of Youth Services.
Over the past five years, the city has developed the NLR ACTION plan, a concise community action plan that has proven to alleviate juvenile crime and gang and clique involvement by providing the needs most at-risk youth are seeking.
The program also highlights some the successful collaborations between governmental departments, youth service delivery agencies and other programs that have made an incredible impact on the lives of many youth and the community at large in North Little Rock, AR.
