WHAT IS STREETS THE GAME:
STREETS is an out of the box, entirely new approach to providing those in the streets and gang lifestyle with a first of its kind, non-judgmental, non-confrontational, enjoyable opportunity to reflect on, and to talk about their lifestyle choices in a way that brings understanding, insight, compassion, bonding and healing.
There are approximately one million young people in gangs in the US. Individuals who are involved in this lifestyle understand one another, and speak the same language.
Through STREETS game play, participants will learn, recognize, understand and appreciate how they have been impacted by their life and gang experiences, as well as the traumas they have experienced, as they bond in authentic and positive ways. The STREETS game provides a tool and process through which they can support one another in expressing what brought them to the choices they have made, and to experience validation, support, caring and respect.
