Why Young People Join Gangs Los Angeles Police Department Gang members join a gang by either committing a crime or undergoing an initiation procedure wherein they are beaten by fellow gang members to test their courage and fighting ability. Their motivations for joining the gang are varied, but usually fall within one of the following: Identity or Recognition - Being part of a gang allows the gang member to achieve a level of status he/she feels impossible outside the gang culture. Protection - many members join because they live in the gang area and are, therefore, subject to violence by rival gangs.

Some join to intimidate others in the community not involved in gang activity. Criminal Activity - Some join a gang to engage in narcotics activity and benefit from the group’s profits and protection.

She seems a little listless and does not seem to be interested in any activity the teacher suggests.

She spent the first part of her life in a very neglectful situation. Julie has seemed very disinterested in her new family. She does not look at anyone when they talk to her.
