The Youth Violence Prevention Program is training young people to be individual thinkers and to be better citizens; ones who are about building up the community not tearing it down. Thus, youth are being instructed in gang prevention/intervention, anger management, decision making, conflict resolution, character building, goal setting and social & communication skills. Other vital components of the program include YVYLA's mental health and substance abuse elements to help address those root causes for the youth's violent behavior.
It is the intention of the Youth Violence Prevention Program/P.R.I.D.E. to impart to its participants the kind of knowledge and skill required to lessen the person to person violence and create safer communities. We believe that by first training young people to think for themselves instead of following the crowd, to take responsibility for their own actions even when they're angry and how to express those feelings in a nonviolent manner we are creating a more confident, more capable, more considerate group of young citizens. And the young people are working hard to become better citizens, better individuals and it is our honor to acknowledge their efforts and success.
On January 3rd they will be honoring the proud graduates of the program's next completed session at 4:30PM at 18136 Jurupa, Bloomington, CA 92316 .
Congratulations graduating youth:
