Rooted in counter-narrative storytelling, Live Young Blood is a multimedia training that takes a rare look at efforts to combat community violence. The traumatic impact of violence in urban communities along with preventative measures are shared from the perspectives of youth, parents, practitioners, and activists on the frontlines. Participants will learn how community-based youth programs can help hone the strengths among Black youth, reduce risk factors, and provide safe spaces.
