National Youth Violence Prevention Week
Observed from April 2 - 8, 2017, National Youth Violence Prevention Week focuses on students making a positive impact in their communities.
The National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE), Inc. is a public nonprofit organization striving to decrease the potential for violence in our schools and communities by promoting meaningful student involvement, education and service opportunities in efforts to provide safer environments for youth.
Through a cadre of volunteers and the resourcefulness of student members, Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) chapters are growing and making a positive difference across the nation. SAVE is a unique and powerful approach to youth safety because it recognizes the role that young people can take in making schools and communities safer. Because SAVE chapters are established and operated by students, the opportunity to spread the message of nonviolence to young people and their communities is enhanced when SAVE chapters exist. Focusing on crime prevention, conflict management and service projects, SAVE students are providing positive peer influences in violence prevention efforts.
