Greenville County Intervention Specialist Dexter Reaves and Think Twice Founder Traci Fant held a gang summit with parents and students hoping to keep kids on the right track. They said they hope these take the path to be successful and fall to peer pressure.
"We are just trying to get the message that gangs are not the good way to go," said Fant.
"The main thing is to encourage the kids to stay away from negative gang violence and any negativity. We want them to be more positive in their communities," said Reaves.
Former Clemson quarterback Woody Dantzler also stressed the importance of love in the household. He says that's what's leading most young people to the streets.
