ABOUT US - Our Mission "World Peace Through Youth Peace" Advocacy and Education. YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A. - War Against Violence Corp., a U.S. non-profit corporation created on March 14, 2008, is a group of adult and youth volunteers whose goal is to help all youth "survive and thrive."

For the adolescent age group, declines have been minimal and where they have occurred, they have been modest." George Patton, Adolescent Health
