EVOLVING GROWING CHANGING
“Exciting Growth and Youth Change”
E.G.C. is committed to awakening our communities to true consciousness, knowledge of self and our inherent greatness, to improving, building and valuing our communities, and to protecting our
future by empowering our youth.
Gang Intervention And Net Growth
The G.I.A.N.G. organization is in the application process of receiving 501 C3 status. We are organized to aid and assist at risk youth who are gang and/or violence affected.
Through our program, the youth are introduced to life skills, conflict resolution, successful thinking, and horticulture, as a way to spark their interest in natural growth processes that can be attributed to their life experiences.
We want to both lend our support and thanks to Le’Taxione and the N’STEP organization for the assistance and creative direction given to us. We, the Asian community, look forward to working with Le’Taxione and N’STEP, to work within our communities that are fraught with gang/youth violence. It is imperative that we work together to save the lives of our youth and rebuild our communities.
Founder of Gang Intervention and Net Growth.

Attn: Le’Taxione, N’ STEP Founder:
On behalf of the Hardknox Gang Prevention and Intervention Program, we would like to express our appreciation for receiving N’STEP’s consent to use the Gangology 101 curriculum within our program.
The Hardknox Gang Prevention and Intervention was officially founded in July, 2015. We are a 501C3, nonprofit corporation. Currently, the program is going on site to local agencies, presenting the gang prevention and intervention curriculum. The goal of the Hardknox program is to reduce violence, raise awareness, and decrease gang activity and gang related crimes in our community. Prior to that, the founder and CEO, Mark A. Salazar was providing his expertise in street and prison gangs, via numerous presentations to various agencies. The goal in mind was that of educating professionals in recognizing and addressing gang issues. His presentations include but are not limited to the following: Pueblo County DSS, Colorado STING conference, Pueblo Probation, Pueblo City Council, School Districts 60 & 70, Municipal and County Courts, District Attorney’s Office- Juvenile Diversion Program. The program is an Educational/Cognitive-Behavioral and Evidence Based program which targets identified high risk behaviors to include: anti-social behaviors, criminal activity, anti-social peers, substance abuse, and familial issues.
We thank you in advance for your support.
Mark A. Salazar
