The Fall River Youth Violence Prevention Initiative is a collaborative effort directed toward empowering our citizens to become involved in the reduction and prevention of youth violence in our community. The movement emphasizes the ideal that no one program, organization, grant, or approach can solve the problem of violence. Our expanded partnership of various violence prevention efforts allows us to move closer to achieving a shared vision of peace for our city and work together on positive youth development.
