Brief Program Description

The Charlotte-Mecklenburg area has experienced activity from traditional, national, and increasingly nontraditional gangs. These non-traditional gangs are loosely organized, geographic in nature, and are recruiting the youth of Charlotte. These non-traditional gangs do not possess the codes and rules associated with traditional gangs, but their on-going activities are delinquent and/or criminal in nature. Schools and other gathering places for youth, such as malls or transportation centers, may enhance their gang identities and become geographic landmarks used as ideological rallying points.
