National Youth Violence Prevention Week

Ending Youth Violence

Join youth and teens from across America to take a stand against violence. National Youth Violence Prevention Week is April 24-28, 2023.
Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) Promise Club is proud to be a founding partner of National Youth Violence Prevention Week (NYVPW). Founded in 2001, NYVPW brings communities together to raise awareness and learn how to stop youth violence. This week-long non-violence initiative shows the positive role young people play in making their schools and communities safer. Get your action kit today and join us!

Engaging Your Community

Everyone can play a role in preventing youth violence. Our community wheel provides ideas for youth, teens, parents, educators, local officials, business leaders, faith-based groups, and so many more. You’ll find resources on how to organize awareness activities leading up to and during NYVPW.

Learn how you can show your commitment to protecting today’s youth and building safer communities. And get your community united, and excited, about preventing youth violence!

Becoming a Youth Leader

Youth are essential partners in NYVPW, leading the change toward safer schools and communities. SAVE Promise Club empowers youth and gives them the tools and training they need to be successful leaders. They influence their peers in a positive way, resulting in a more caring and connected school community. Through SAVE Promise Club, youth organize around important lessons learned through our programs. Together, students are preventing violence – now and in the future.
