Is an initiative of the Santa Teresa Foundation that recruits gang members in the Revenga Municipality, in Aragua, Venezuela. The name comes from the famous Alcatraz prison in California, but with the difference that in this case the worst prison is themselves and the biggest challenge is to escape from themselves. Their own future depends on each participant, we only give them their last opportunity.

For three months they participate in a program that includes intensive labor, integral education in values, work-studies, rugby training, psychological assistance and community service. The objective of reinserting these gangs to society is to solve two of the most severe problems affecting the community: delinquency and unemployment.
