Youth Solutions

In February 2018, two community forums were held to discuss solutions for the prevention of youth violence. 

Community members were trained in Technology of Participation consensus building workshop facilitation. Over 125 community members participated in providing answers to the focus question "What solutions can we provide when working toward reducing youth violence in our community?" through facilitated discussions led by the trained community members. Thank you to everyone who hosted a forum, spread the word about the forums, participated in the forums, or facilitated!
