Young Lives Matter: Exploring the Root Causes of Youth Violence

Tuesday, March 28, 2017 • 1:00-2:30 PM • Tallahassee City Hall

When youth are victimized or are themselves the perpetrators of violence, we all lose. Young lives are gone forever or are lost to the “prison pipeline” – and families are devastated. 

Join The Children’s Trust’s Youth Advisory Committee (YAC) for a dynamic 90-minute workshop that digs into the root causes of youth violence, examining the risk factors that affect both individuals and communities.

Middle and high school students are encouraged to attend this interactive workshop moderated by youth leaders from the YAC. Students and adults can learn about solutions and remedies that help to diminish these factors with the ultimate goal that more youth grow up to make positive contributions to our communities and the world.

YACers will share first-hand experiences from their service learning project on youth violence in Miami. This is sure to be an event you won't want to miss!
