Community Engagement Walks/Activities
To convey a credible, clear message about the consequences of clique/gang violence to youth already involved or at risk of being involved in gangs, we walk the streets to communicate to youth that they have better options for their lives.
HOPE DEALER™ Mentoring
A hybrid mentoring program focused on leadership development, social/emotional learning, and community service. We aim to give at-risk youth the tools they need to be producers of hope instead of products of their environment.
Because homicide disproportionately affects young black males, we’ve created workshops geared towards giving these youth the skills they need to reduce their likelihood of perpetrating or being victimized by gun violence. We offer them in community, school, or any setting where youth are gathered.
Youth-Violence Response Team
Our team responds to reports of youth-related gun violence in hopes of using our social capital and life experiences to reduce the chances of retaliation. We also offer support services to youth and families that have been affected by gun violence.
BEYOND THE WALL
A violence prevention program designed to help incarcerated youth overcome problems they may face once they return to their communities, such as gangs, crime, and drugs.
Youth violence is a significant public health problem that affects thousands of young people each day, and in turn, their families, schools, and communities.
For only $3,500 per month we can continue to faithfully execute these programs to reduce the impact of youth violence on our community. Help us reach our goal by signing up for automated donations today!
