As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Explain the roles and responsibilities of the intervention team and key agencies
  • Recognize challenges associated with building the intervention team and strategies for overcoming them
  • Identify strategies for engaging and working effectively as a team to intervene with gang-involved youth
