Each day of the program, students go to different locations to build on these lessons. This program is a cooperative effort between law enforcement, schools, parents and the community – all working together to help children make good life choices. The goal of the program is to prevent youth crime, violence, and gang involvement, while developing a positive relationship among our young people to create a safer community.
Some of the events the students participated in are; The Ropes course, kayaking, hiking and community service (beach cleanup at Zephyr Cove Beach).

On Thursday, June 5th, 2014, in a ceremony at Zephyr Cove officiated by Douglas County Sheriff Ron Pierini, twenty (20) students graduated from the nationally acclaimed Gang Resistance Education and Training (G.R.E.A.T.) program.

Sheriff Ron Pierini and the members of the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office are focused on combating gang activity in and out of our community. The G.R.E.A.T. program is a vital tool in that effort.
