Youth has always been a driving force for any society. Its involvement in criminal and gang activities can lead to social destruction.
Large-scale involvement of youth in gangs has gained interest among many researchers because of the harm associated with this culture, particularly, when youth on which the future of a nation depends becomes involved in gang activities. Researchers have been studying the factors that make the mind of young adults to join a gang. For example, cultural factors, social factors, and financial factors have always been the areas of concerns for researchers. Despite the growing body of literature regarding socio-demographic factors that affect the decision of youth to enter or leave a gang, researchers have not been able to give a detailed insight into the issue. Previous studies (Wanberg, 2004. Chaskin, 2010. Heinonen, 2011) have not been able to identify accurate reasons that inject a sense of segregation and disagreement in the minds of youth. Additional studies are required to know the socio-demographic factors that influence the decision of youth regarding joining or leaving a gang.
This study proposes to (1) identify socio-demographic factors that make youth enter of leave gangs and (2) determine whether sexual harassment, bullying, and discrimination are also some main factors leading people to form or join gangs. Previous researches have been unable to get an insight into factors that promote formation of gangs among youth. In this study, programs have been aimed to know the differences between youth who are part of a gang and those who are not. This research also aims to understand youth’s engagement in gangs regardless of religious, ethnic, racial, and gender differences. The goal will be to increase awareness of those socio-demographic factors that influence the decision of young people regarding joining or leaving gangs.
