Purpose: The 24-month project will develop/adapt approaches to engaging youth in violence prevention. Youth will identify the issues of violence affecting girls and young women in their communities, expand their knowledge of these issues, develop leadership skills, and deliver innovative youth-led projects to address the issues within their communities. This project will develop culturally sensitive, participatory, youth-led, arts-based and multi-media programs that empower youth to name the realities of violence in their own voice and to communicate this reality to others. The project will focus on youth, particularly immigrant and Aboriginal youth in southern Vancouver Island.
