November 30: Uncomfortable Conversations
The live webcast will begin at 7:15 pm on Friday, November 30th. The show starts at 7:30.
Uncomfortable Conversations is a youth-led initiative created by
United Way NCA developed Way to P.E.A.C.E. — to take on the underlying causes of youth violence. Working with faith-based and community-based organizations — collectively known as “the collaborative” — we offer hope and possibilities to our youth, and the people and organizations that care for them. Through a combination of community awareness activities, workshops and youth development programs, plus financial support to give children and teens a more secure home environment, we provide tools and resources to make our kids more secure in themselves and in their environment.
Community Resource Toolkit For Organizations and Schools
Working with the Way to P.E.A.C.E. Collaborative, United Way of the National Capital Area developed P.E.A.C.E. It Together, a free, comprehensive toolkit designed for organizations and schools with an interest in finding solutions to youth violence.
The toolkit is divided into three sections:
- Educate Me: Includes facts and statistics around bullying, gang involvement, and other topics related to youth violence, tips for parents, and more,
- Empower Me: Comprehensive descriptions of four empowerment workshops offered by the Way to P.E.A.C.E. collaborative,
- Connect Me: Contact information for collaborative members who provide social services support and mentoring programs geared toward youth violence prevention.
