Challenge

WHAT WE DO - We believe the best stepping stone to world peace is by achieving "youth peace" first. We work to end the "War Against Youth" and "Youth vs. Youth Wars." THE CHALLENGE FOR YOUTH -"We've seen tremendous improvements in the health of younger children - huge declines in mortality in children under 5, declines of 80 percent in the last 15 years. For the adolescent age group, declines have been minimal and where they have occurred, they have been modest." George Patton, Adolescent Health
