Gang culture

Add to My Shortlist

There is a growing culture amongst young people to become involved in gangs for protection, a sense of identity, status, friendship, money and sex.

Joining a gang will not give you more protection; it could enhance your chance of being targeted as a victim. Gang members make far less money than those who do not join gangs. Gang members usually don't get a good education, making it hard to find a good job.

Gang culture can have consequences that could affect the rest of your life.
