Calgary gang members have provided YouthLink with critical information in exclusive interviews

Find out how gangs recruit kids as young as 11 to join the gang life.

Working with the Calgary Police Gang Unit, YouthLink is able to dispel the myths of family and brotherhood associated with gang life, and show what gang members really think when they are behind the protection of jail bars.
