The Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies(CLACS) at NYU and the Kimberly Green Latin American And Caribbean Center at FIU present a virtual workshop for educators and student service professionals to learn about the gang phenomenon in the Americas.
The workshop is free and open to educators and student service professionals. Registration is required by Thursday, June 24, 2021.
About the Workshop:
This virtual workshop offers a professional development opportunity to education professionals who are providing critical support to the student body as teachers, administrators, and student service professionals. The virtual training will examine the causes and conditions behind the development of a gang phenomenon in many countries in the Americas. It will provide a space for discussion of community-led initiatives to better understand cultural, historical, economic, and societal causes of gang development in the Americas. The training will also focus on how to reduce the vulnerabilities of immigrant communities and the underserved populations in the US that suffer the greatest.
