I'm a peer mentor/ peer speaker. We go out to juvenile centers, churches, to schools, and we talk to youth about the consequences of gang involvement and drug activity. It's not a "Scared Straight" program; it's basically to give you information. What the children tend to do with this information, it's up to them. We just try to explain to them that it's their choice, and what choice they make is going to affect them later on in life. So, it's best to make the best decision you can while you're young.
