How you can help

It's not up to adults and police to do something about youth violence. Adult solutions won't work by themselves. Youth can - and should - do something. If you want to start seeing changes in your school or where you live, here are some things that you should do:

  • be aware there is a problem.
  • recognize that violence affects everyone - anyone can be a victim.
  • talk about violence with your friends and family - take a stand.
  • don' t react to violence with more violence.
  • get together - find ways to help stop violence in your school or where you live before it happens.
  • if there's a youth council, get involved - help promote positive alternatives to youth and gang violence where you live.
  • call or write your local media - let them know the positive alternatives to youth and gang violence where you live.
  • learn the truth about violence in your community - don't let rumors run your life.
  • remember that violent teens are a minority - don't let their actions speak for all youth.
