It was sad for me to hear that a school we shared a special relationship with, Baltimore Civitas School, was the site of a very sad situation. A student, said to be a victim of bullying, stabbed another student after he choked him. This situation speaks to so much and is a microcosm for the issues our youth face. We are here to have youth understand peaceful alternatives to deal with conflict and equip those that work with them the ability to create safe spaces. Situations like this are just reminders of the urgent need to continue the work. Holding both young men, both families and the school in the light.
Very interesting findings
The Baltimore Youth Empowerment through Conflict Resolution Program is recruiting Program Advisory Committee members once again.
We’re looking for anyone who cares about the youth of Baltimore City and want to do something to empower them for a better life!
