Building a Better Future


National Youth Violence Prevention Week, March 28-April 2, 2022

This years NYVPW theme is “Building a Better Future”, were we hope to steer the conversation of violence prevention towards securing a better future for the youth in our community. The events we have lined up for that week approaches violence prevention from multiple focal points: community engagement, policy, mental health, research, and civic engagement. While centering youth voice, we hope to further the conversation in each area and continue working towards “Building A Better Future.” The Office for Safe & Healthy Neighborhoods is committed to building a better future for each citizen within Louisville.
