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.
