An NCCD study on girls’ involvement in gangs is featured in the Winter 2017 issue of the National Gang Center Newsletter. The study examined how and why girls become gang-affiliated and how and why some girls avoid or leave gang activity. The study includes information about addressing the needs of gang-involved/formerly gang-involved girls and recommends that services recognize the girls’ individuality and provide tailored plans that build on their strengths.
