The week of April 7 - 11 is National Youth Violence Prevention Week! During this week, there will be a call to raise awareness and discussion of issues related to youth violence. The National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) will work as an information and resource center, providing an action kit and instruction on how to make the most of the campaign. As a prominent issue today, youth violence, and this campaign, can be something worth discussing with your Little.
The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness and to educate students, teachers, school administrators, counselors, school resource officers, school staff, parents, and the public on effective ways to prevent or reduce youth violence. This week long national education initiative will involve activities that demonstrate the positive role young people can have in making their school and community safer. SAVE serves as the crossroads to the campaign and provides countless resources to prepare for the event, including the official campaign Action Kit that serves as a step-by-step planning guide, suggestions for how each sector of the community can support the campaign, activity ideas, links to over 40 national organizations sponsoring the event, articles and interviews on violence prevention, and much, much more!
