Safeyouth.org, a comprehensive new resource from the National Youth Violence Prevention Resource Center (NYVPRC), outlines a variety of topics related to youth violence for both educators and counselors. NYVPRC was established as a source of information on prevention and intervention programs, publications, research, and statistics on violence committed by and against children and teens. Sponsored by the White House Council on Youth Violence, the center is a collaboration between the council, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and other federal agencies. The center’s web site includes links to topics such as youth violence, violence prevention programs, intimate partners and domestic violence abuse, firearms, suicide, and homicide. Users can also access a variety of FAQs and a complete A-Z directory of topics related to youth safety and violence prevention. The NYVPRC web site and call center, at (866) SAFEYOUTH, serve as a user-friendly, single point of access to federal information on youth violence and suicide prevention.
