Combining LST Transitions with the LST Parent Program creates a strategy that is comprehensive and community-focused, providing a holistic approach to serving youth in gangs.

The Transitions program for 16- and 17-year old students teaches the acquisition of work-readiness skills including time and money management. Its 45-minute sessions fit perfectly into an after-school setting.

 The Parent Program lessons create a supportive setting and can be peer-led. This skills-based program is also available in Spanish.
