Child and Youth Violence Prevention Services

Our Program provides funding to community-based initiatives across the state working to prevent youth violence.

We strive to build the capacity of community based organizations throughout the Commonwealth to respond to the needs of high risk youth and interrupt the vicious cycle of youth violence. Through this, we aim to create safe, nurturing environments that allow providers to “teach and inspire” youth at the greatest risk for gang violence, substance use disorder, sexual violence, dating violence, sex trafficking and bullying.
