YouthAlert! (YA!) "Youth Peace" Program is now active in schools and out-of-school locations in California, Florida, Chicago Illinois regions, the New York City Region, and Kentucky. The program is also available in other states in the U.S.A. The program is "Survive and Thrive" skills training focused on teens. Extra attention is given to U.S minorities and the LGBTIQ+ community.
The program is designed on an "Effective" model practice:
“Universal school-based programs decrease rates of violence and aggressive behavior among school-aged children. Program effects were demonstrated at all grade levels.” (U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, CDC)
Subjets include Bullying, Cyberbullying, Self-Harm, Gun Violence, Peer Violence, LGBTIQ+ Violence, Dating Violence, Sexual Violence, Interpersonal Violence, Gang Violence, School Violence, Media, Inequity of Violence, Victimization, and more.
Average for All Programs: $2.00 per youth. Pricing that puts the program within reach of many communities.
