Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.)
The G.R.E.A.T. Program is a school-based, law enforcement officer-instructed classroom curriculum. With prevention as its primary objective, the program is intended as an immunization against delinquency, youth violence, and gang membership.
G.R.E.A.T. lessons focus on providing life skills to students to help them avoid using delinquent behavior and violence to solve problems. The G.R.E.A.T. Program offers a continuum of components for students and their families.
The G.R.E.A.T. Program consists of four components: a middle school curriculum, an elementary school curriculum, a summer program, and families training. Presently, the department has six certified great instructors. For more information, contact the community outreach department at (404) 848-3670.
