Community Re-Integration and Aftercare

Gang parole, pre-release, and re-entry program curriculum resources include workbooks and lessons that address the critical issues in making the transition back to the community. They address important issues in planning for a good life, key recovery topics, and provide guidance for dealing with family and friends. Organizations and facilities can select from a wide range of options to address specific gang parole, pre-release, and re-entry program needs.

Designed to supplement A New Freedom, our gang parole, pre-release, and re-entry curriculum can also be used independently. They are easy to implement and supervise, and cost-effective using the "site license" arrangement (a "one-time" cost). All materials include behaviorally-stated objectives and lesson plans for instructors, and are written at a grade 5-7 level.

Community Aftercare

Designed for both parole-based programs and for community programs addressing the needs of high risk youth and adults, these materials were developed from our highly successful Returning Home program resources. They address common issues in the community during the highest periods of risk, and guide the development of an individual safety net and aftercare plan. They are supplemented by vocational, gang avoidance, and substance abuse recovery planning tools.

Most important, they provide substantial guidance and practice in the development of self-efficacy in addressing the individuals highest risk people, places things and situations.
