Violence Prevention: Community Programs

Many resources are available in the community to help schools prevent, prepare for, and manage school emergencies. In addition to your local law enforcement and mental health agencies, they can include youth bureaus, private foundations and not-for-profit agencies. Many offer speakers or training to school personnel and youths. Local businesses or churches may provide volunteering or employment opportunities, mentoring or structured recreational activities for youths.
