Objectives: Reduce factors that place youth at risk for perpetrating violence, promote factors that protect youth at risk for violence by recognizing personal qualities and external supports, positive social orientation, setting high expectations, enhanced problem-solving and communication skills, and modeling proper conflict resolution.

“Many schools and communities have misconceptions on what it means to be an at-risk student and the problems that afflict them. Through surveys to identify the current issues and supporting data, schools and communities can provide the best possible learning environment for all learners.”
