Does your community have a problem with gangs? Are you or anyone you know in a gang? Have you been approached by a gang trying to recruit you?
While a gang can seem like a way out or a place to belong, members often face serious consequences for their choices. It is important to remember that:
If you are in a gang and no longer want to be, don’t tell the gang that you want to leave. This can affect your safety. A Kids Help Phone counsellor can connect you with people who have experience in gang exiting (leaving a gang) and put you in touch with programs that can help you leave. To contact help please call: 1-800-668-6868.
