As part of our ongoing efforts to heighten the awareness of the dangers of gang life, we have worked closely with Dr. Borba’s materials. For two years, over 7,500 students were exposed to her program and the results have contributed to an overall reduction in violent crimes and school expulsions by 25.6%.
