The Jordan Gang Prevention and Intervention Program (GPIP) is designed for students K-12. Healthy lifestyle choices, conflict resolution, social skills, career exploration, life time recreation and values of education are the focus. Students are taught to demonstrate community respect by performing service-learning projects. Participants are selected by the administration and counseling staff of the school. Individuals and/or groups are facilitated by the Gang Prevention Specialist.
In addition, the Gang Prevention Specialist provides gang awareness and prevention training to 5th grade students in targeted schools identified as having greater risk for gang involvement.
All Jordan School District teachers receive gang awareness training.
