Help Prevent Youth Violence

Youth Violence Prevention is Possible!

Everyone can help stop youth violence before it starts. Effective prevention strategies promote awareness of youth violence as a public health problem that can be prevented.

Do your part during National Youth Violence Prevention Week by committing to these strategies…

  • Promoting family environments that support healthy development.
  • Providing quality education early in life.
  • Strengthening youth’s skills through universal school-based programs.
  • Connecting youth to caring adults and activities.
  • Create protective community environments.
  • Intervene to lessen harms and prevent future risks.

To learn how to advance these strategies through approaches and discover the evidence behind them based on decades of research, check out CDC’s Youth Violence Prevention Technical Package.

Youth Violence is a Serious Public Health Problem

Every day among youth aged 10 to 24: 

  • 12 are victims of homicide.
  • 1,374 are treated in emergency departments for injuries from physical assault.

But youth violence isn’t inevitable. You can be part of the solution.

By working together, we can provide safe and healthy relationships and environments for all young people to achieve their full potential.
