Some of the core concepts of the program is:

All youth are equal in meaning, importance, value, and worth without exception.

It is all youth destiny to live a long and healthy life

Survival is the "Name Of the Game" for youth.

All violence by youth is essential self- destructive

Most hurt themselves rather than get hurt by others.

The best team is an equal youth/adult team. That is what the presentation is.

Most youth are peaceful; therefore, we say to youth, “Don't Change.” Youth are one hundred percent innocent and perfect just the way they are

Tomorrow is another day. One day can and often does make all the difference.

All "wars" are "Youth vs. Youth Wars"

We are fighting to end the "War Against Youth" with all forms of violence and all youth

With students returning to in-class learning in the Chicago, IL area, YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A. is bringing its in-person peace program directly to kids, most especially in middle school and high school. Our peace program is where youth and adults meet halfway for a more peaceful and better life for all. Teamwork is our solution to everything.

We teach the power of youth internal individual identity and that being peaceful is in every child and youth’s self-interest. The two principles that guide our program is “equality” and “kindness.” The program gives special attention to U.S. minorities and those in the LGBTQ+ community. Our program all gives kids valuable information about other prevention and intervention groups and agencies they can access for free.

In the age of COVID, YouthAlert! (YA) U.S.A. is developing more fullying its on-line/virtual YouthAlert! (YA!) Peace Program for Children and Youth. The program is becoming essential for those schools with Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) requirements. The YA! program help kids survive and thrive in the real world. YA! believe all 1.8 billion youth in the world are equal in meaning, importance, value, and worth, and equal in any other way you can think of. We also believe youth peace could a very successful step to world peace. The biggest problem we think the U.S. has today is the horrible youth gun violence problem and the terrible inequality that comes with it.

That is why YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A. with its Special Consultative Status with ECOSOC  at the United Nations is promoting its own; peace first, youth peace first, peace plans for the Korean Peninsula and Syria. The solution is teamwork, and in our own small way, we hope to be a part of theirs, and others, peace team.
