PARTICIPATE IN NATIONAL YOUTH VIOLENCE PREVENTION WEEK

Everyone can play a role in preventing youth violence. National Youth Violence Prevention Week (March 30 – April 3, 2020) is a great time to get involved. The goal of this week long 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.

National Youth Violence Prevention Week (March 30 – April 3, 2020), organized by Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE)  and Sandy Hook Promise, is celebrating its seventeenth year. During this week-long national education initiative, various activities will demonstrate the positive role young people can have in making their schools and communities safer.  Each day of the week focuses on a specific violence prevention strategy. These include: knowing the signs, promoting respect and tolerance, being an upstander, resolving conflicts peacefully,  and uniting in action. Campaign strategy sponsors offer activities and information to support each day’s focus.  We also are delighted to announce that a number of other organizations have joined as community partners to bring a variety of perspectives and resources to the campaign.

Each day of the week highlights a specific challenge to prevent youth violence:

  • Monday: Know The Signs and SAVE the Day
  • Tuesday: Promote Respect & Tolerance
  • Wednesday:  Be an Upstander
  • Thursday: Resolve Conflicts Peacefully
  • Friday: Unite in Action
