The Big Lie Image

Activity

Gangs - Big Lie - Activity Video VignetteAlong with teaching about positive mentors, the video also shows alternatives to gang life, specifically, getting involved in positive activities.  One of the ways the video teaches kids to make positive choices is by interviewing  DJ, an 11-year-old boy from a single parent home, who, instead of getting involved in gangs or in the streets, joins the Boys and Girls Club.  He is involved in positive activities, makes good friends, and is taught positive life lessons.  Institutions, like the Boys and Girls Clubs can be found in every community and provide a safe, secure, positive family environment, unlike the false sense of safety gangs promise.
