Gang Prevention Program 

Our Gang Prevention Program serves as a beacon of hope for youth between the ages of 10 and 15 in the heartland of Harbor Gateway, San Pedro, Harbor City, and Wilmington. Our dedicated team delves deep into the root causes that lead youth towards gang affiliation and criminal activity. Our aim? To intercept, inspire, and instill a brighter vision of the future.

Recognizing that every individual's journey is unique, we offer a tailored approach to each youth and their family. We're not just about preventing negative outcomes; we're about fostering positive ones. Our comprehensive suite of free services ranges from one-on-one mentoring and intimate family counseling to vibrant youth group meetings that spark conversation and change.

Education forms the backbone of our initiative, but we also believe in the transformative power of culture and recreation. Whether it's through enlightening cultural excursions, sports, or immersive activities, our mission is to open doors to new worlds and possibilities for these youth.

Together, as a community, we can chart a course towards a brighter, more hopeful future – one where our children are defined not by the challenges they face, but by their dreams and the heights they aspire to reach.

If you or someone you know is interested in the program, please contact Mariela Luna at (310) 832-1145 or email

Our gang prevention services are provided through the support of the GRYD program by the City of Los Angeles.
