Nurturing life. Growing hope. Seeking change.
THE YOUTH VIOLENCE SYSTEMS PROJECT is about more than just building models to understand how youth violence works in Boston neighborhoods. It is also about bringing together groups of youth workers, families, community leaders, clergy, academics, funders, and concerned individuals to make Boston a safer, healthier city for all. Through community feedback and learning teams, research, and systems dynamics modeling, we hope to enable stronger communication, agreement and cooperation around a community-wide response to youth violence in Boston. Thank you for visiting our website and for your interest in the project! We hope your experience here is fruitful and inspirational.
