The project will engage youth and their families in educational workshops on violence and mental health because of the traumatic effects of violence associated with mental health. The youth will build a youth- led digital network and digital media library that will include a new website and a presence on many different social media platforms.
This youth led network will create and run social development programs centered around most vulnerable populations (MVP) youth. This will be a safe space network for youth mentorship with peer leaders and survivors of violence. The media library of violence prevention campaign commercials and recurring events will increase publicity to reduce violence. The self-sustaining platforms will grow this network’s brand to empower youth leadership and generate jobs for youth after the project ends.
Stay tuned for updates on the program.
