Each year, emerging youth leaders in our program serve as youth peer mentors for our S.A.V.E. Program (Suicide Awareness and Anti-Violence Education). The S.A.V.E. Program is offered in partnership with the Kansas City, Missouri Health Department and is a youth-led, peer-to-peer violence prevention mentorship program where teens discuss the devastating impact of violence in our communities using evidence-based curriculum and materials. YA collaborates with child health experts, community members, civic leaders, and anti-violence content experts, to help teens identify the potential for violence in social settings, learn how to report violence once it occurs, while learning how to de-escalate conflict in a safe and effective manner.
"Me Time" is always important, and our teens know it!
Here's your reminder to check in with your loved ones today, whether you need it or they do!
