The Youth Violence Prevention Project is a 24-week program that engages girls and non-binary youth in recognizing and preventing violence in their communities. Facilitators and elders from the community engage participants in a diverse curriculum and involve them in activities that build understanding, bridge ethnocultural communities, develop leadership, and empower marginalized youth to engage in anti-violence work in their own lives. By providing meals, transportation, mentorship, and peer support, the program aims to reduce barriers to participation.
Grant amount: $20,000
