Last year the Safety Net Works Coalition received a grant from the Illinois Violence Prevention Authority to
provide youth violence prevention programming. The Violence Prevention Collaborative developed a program called “Youth Leadership in Media” to provide opportunities for youth to lead a violence prevention public awareness campaign in the media.
Eight youth are currently being trained by KMK Media Group on how to do effective letter writing for fundraising, advertising posters, and interviewing techniques. The eight youth are calling themselves the Violence Enders.
