To adults anywhere, we advocate for "Youth Peace” Policies with the United Nations and all 193 United Nations Member States. We also advocate for "Youth Peace" with local U.S. Municipalities, U.S. State Governments, and the U.S. Federal Government.
We have been successful in getting "Youth Peace" resolutions passed in the U.N. General Assembly and "Safe Schools" legislation passed in the U.S. Congress.

"We are grateful for the contribution your organization has made. " (Dept. of Global Communications, United Nations, NYC, 2023)
The Campaign Educates
To youth everywhere, we present our "Youth Peace" Program, a live, in-person school-based presentation for those twenty-six years of age or younger by a YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A. instructor. Age-appropriate programming. It's essential "Survive & Thrive" Skills Training for today's world. The Campaign is also a national Public Awareness effort.

The students appreciate the fast paced, media approach that respects them personally and accurately addresses the real life issues they confront daily” (Practical Living Specialist, Jefferson County Public Schools, Louisville, KY, 2018)
The Campaign Believes
All youth are “equal” in importance, meaning, value, and worth, without exception.
That it is youths No. 1 job to “survive” their youth.
It is all youth’s “destiny” to live a long and healthy life.
Violence, bullying, and abuse (VBA) are the “Head of the Snake.” It is the most prominent “root problem” for youth.
To truly “protect” and save “any youth,” we must protect and save “all youth.”
