Reach out to your Youth Organizer for the following:

Youth organizers, in accordance with a youth and resident driven safety plan, support youth-led initiatives. These efforts will aim to enhance safety and reduce crime. The youth organizer will support these youth activities, clearing the way for youth to impact the community and help to bridge the intergenerational gap between youth and adult residents. The ultimate goal will be to increase youth collective efficacy in the neighborhoods, connecting youth to their community and empowering them to enact the change they’d like to see.
