Some youth in the Lake County, Illinois area have been court-ordered to attend Transitions meetings. This has helped to rehabilitate gang members and introduce them into mainline society. These rehabilitated youth are assisted by Gang Outreach in securing employment. A certificate of completion is awarded to those individuals who have successfully progressed through our seven-level Transitions program. The average time frame for most individuals is from three to six months, depending on their willingness to change.
