Description: 

National Hazing Prevention Week 2010 is from September 20 - 24!

The National Hazing Prevention Week is observed on campuses and within organizations and includes a variety of activities including: brown bag discussions among faculty, movie showings, training for organizational and team leaders and the signing of anti-hazing pledges. Some programs plan activities for the entire week while others plan one or two meaningful events.

The goal of National Hazing Prevention Week is to prevent hazing from happening by educating parents, faculty, students, community members, police and others so they can more easily recognize hazing - and most importantly, so that they have the skills to intervene when hazing does occur.

A planning document is available to help you and your community get started!

As the national online community dedicated to advancing primary prevention of sexual violence and intimate partner violence, PreventConnect hosts a series of popular web conferences. These web conferences are lively discussions where participants engage with guests to explore a wide range of prevention topics.

The theme for the web conference series in 2010 will be Changing Norms to Prevent Sexual Violence and Intimate Partner Violence. PreventConnect's key partner, Prevention Institute, will lead the web conferences to explore specific strategies to change the norms that contribute to sexual violence, intimate partner violence and teen dating violence. Each web conference will investigate one of the five norms identified by Prevention Institute as contributing to violence against women.

Description: 

Youth violence refers to harmful behaviors that can start early and continue into young adulthood. The young person may be a victim, an offender, or a witness to the violence.

While violence impacts people of all ages, violence disproportionately affects youth and is the second leading cause of death for young people between the ages of 10 and 24.

Because of the multiple factors that contribute to the development of violence, a comprehensive preventative approach is needed. Youth violence prevention also requires collaboration among justice, public safety, education, public health, and human service agencies, with the support of community leaders, businesses, and faith-based organizations.

Resources:

To access additional information and resources related to youth violence, visit the National Criminal Justice Reference Service's Youth Violence website and the National Youth Violence Prevention Resource Center website.
