Youth Violence Prevention

Youth violence is a widespread but preventable public health problem that negatively affects youth, families, and communities across the United States. It is an adverse childhood experience (ACE) and a type of community violence that impacts young people and limits their opportunities to thrive and live healthy lives.

Now is the time to work together to promote prevention strategies that use the best available evidence to promote safe, healthy, and supportive schools and communities for young people.
