Welcome To G-MACC

G-MACC Inc. is based upon changing the lives of those caught in the street life, which involves drugs, guns, violence, prison and the overall gangsta mentality.

The Transition

Shanduke McPhatter is the Founder and Executive Director of the not for profit, Gangstas Making Astronomical Community Changes Inc. cites his experience in prison as the reason why he became a community activist. After being convicted for a Robbery he did not commit as a teen Shanduke became engulfed into the prison lifestyle.While in a state prison Shanduke saw a little boy (eventually incarcerated for 31yrs) running to his father (mentor during his 1st/2nd incarceration), another prisoner, for the first time. This moment became his reason to break the cycle of incarceration and violence as he did not want his kids or any child to visit their parent in prison.This realization is why he focuses on helping the youth in the community, while also being the reason to fall into the cycle of violence again.

For those striving to create a change in their lives, G.-M.A.C.C. Inc.’s Signature Gangstas Anonymous allows formerly incarcerated individuals to positively transition into the community. This support group provides assistance and an outlet for these individuals to make a positive change in their life and the community.
G.-M.A.C.C. Inc.’s Signature Physical Mentors program is a youth oriented initiative that offers guidance to the community. Through exercise and physical training, G.-M.A.C.C Inc.’s staff offers teen mentoring that allows an open discussion and emotional outlet for young individuals. At this point, our staff is able to break the cycle of aggression that creates positivity in the lives of our youth and community.
G-.M.A.C.C. Inc.’s signature 7-Week Rebuild Curriculum is a program that addresses the school-to-prison pipeline through a 7 week program. By identifying the poison that is the oppressive nature of gun violence and the “gangsta mentality”, GMACC then attempts to provide an antidote. This program offers mentorship and guidance that allows incarcerated individuals to realize that their past actions can become the stepping stones to a positive future.
The Cure Violence Model is oriented around selected members of the community, who provides assistance to “at risk” individuals and the community through conflict mediation, community engagement, and transitional support. Approaching violence in this way allows for behavioral changes and positivity to arise within individual lives and our community.
