Friend versus Friendly

Session: 100 minutes


This workshop teaches Year 6 school children about the exploitative nature of gangs dispelling the myths that gangs are conventional friendship groups that provide people with protection.

Our facilitators help young people create positive peer pressure to reject gang culture whilst providing all with basic personal safety advice.


This programme helps students understand how gangs recruit members and subsequently  be more likely to

  • Recognise the difference between friendship and friendly

  • Understand that gangs are not conventional friendship groups and that they exploit young people

  • Identify strategies for keeping themselves safe and avoid becoming gang involved.
