National Youth Violence Prevention Week

National Youth Violence Prevention Week

Event Date: 
Monday, April 8, 2019 (All day) to Friday, April 12, 2019 (All day)

Founded in 2001 and organized by Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) and Sandy Hook Promise, National Youth Violence Prevention Week (NYVPW) aims to spread awareness and educate students, school staff, parents, and the public on effective ways to prevent or reduce youth violence.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), school violence includes bullying, physical fighting, weapon use, cyberbullying, and gang violence. In 2017, 7% of high school students did not go to school at least 1 day in the past month because they did not feel safe at school or on their way to or from school.

The first step in preventing school violence is to understand the problem. This year join the NYVPW initiative and educate your community about youth violence.
