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.
With students returning to in-class learning in NYC, 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.
NY-NJ-CT middle schools, high schools, and elementary schools are being offered our YouthAlert (YA!) Child and Youth Peace Program. Schools have several options, in-person student instruction by YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A. personnel, live webinars, or the ability to purchase individual lesson plans. The program follows a model violence prevention education practice that is rated “EFFECTIVE” by the U.S. Department of Justice.
We are also advocating for youth peace in Washington, D.C., and are striving for youth peace in other areas of the world through the United Nations. As a result of all our efforts, YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A.’s Twitter and Facebook accounts are also becoming more active.
