Join Bands Not Gangs NPC

Join Bands Not Gangs is a crime prevention initiative that works with gang prevention/gang intevention model, where we recruit at-risk children into music programs before they can get recruited by gangs around the traditional recruitment age of 9-14 and then we intervene into active street gangs by building relationship with Gangsters centered around upliftment programs and music lessons as the drawing card, from where we help those who are ready to enter into Life Rehabilitation programs. We also help gangsters who receive parole to enter Life Skills programs instead of returning to the streets on parole. We work mainly in Scottsdene, Kraaifontein, Cape Town.
