Project SAVE (Stop All Violence with Education)
In 2012, Project SAVE, a non-profit 501c (3) organization, will host its first annual virtual conference. Understanding that violence is a global public health problem, especially among young people ages 14 – 25 (World Health Organization); Project SAVE is striving to help create one global voice against youth violence. The mission of Project SAVE is to Stop All Violence with Education (SAVE) and to sponsor a highly visible campaign to help make the world a safer place for youth.
“It is our world to craft, give us the tools and we will change it,” a Chicago youth leader.
PROJECT SAVE 1ST ANNUAL GLOBAL YOUTH NON-VIOLENCE CONFERENCE
In preparation for the first annual conference, an estimated fifty youth from at least 12 target countries will be selected to serve as Project SAVE Youth Ambassadors and train as youth conference facilitators beginning in January 2012. These trained ambassadors will help to assess youth needs in their countries, conceive strategies for global outreach and project sustainability, and host the global virtual conference. The goal of the virtual conference is to engage a large number of young people in proactive global discussions, development and implementation of training and education programs to significantly reduce the incidences of deadly and disabling violence among the world’s youth.
