YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A.’s worldwide, universal “Youth Peace” Campaign is continuing with significant effort. We aim to achieve results through advocacy, education, and training. The goal is a substantial improvement in the lives of youth in “their” world. We want to end youth vs. youth violence and the “War Against Youth.” Our group is trying to create “Youth Peace” country-wide, building blocks and momentum in some of the most high-risk areas for youth. We aim to tackle "the worst, first." Key regions this initiative has been focused on have been the U.S., the Korean Peninsula, Syria, Iran, Israel, and Gaza. In America, our priorities are self-harm and gun violence.
The Campaign is centered around several core beliefs:
“Peace if the First Principle of Everything.” “Peace” is the gateway, the best steppingstone to the Good Principles of Humanity; Peace, Life, Love, Freedom, and Equality (PLLFE). Then Teamwork, Equity, Human Advancement, Human Happiness, and ultimately better our chances of Human Survival. We believe violence, bullying, and abuse (VBA) are currently the greatest threat to humankind. Ninety-nine percent of all species on this planet are already extinct, including every other hominid. Humans should and must survive. But not to survive just to suffer, but to achieve “excellence.”
That “Youth Peace” is an effective steppingstone to world “Peace.” That “Youth Peace First” should be applied to all conflict regions or potential conflict regions.
Its youth’s number one job is to survive their youth, and it is adults’ job to help them. We need every youth. Youth are the present. If we want youth to be the future, they need adult help.
That all youth are equal in importance, value, meaning, and worth, and every other way we can think of, known or unknown, without exception
It is all youth’s destiny to live a long and healthy life.
