The National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention is a yearly conference that brings together community leaders and experts from all over to discuss and collaborate on effective solutions to preventing youth violence. Durable Collaboration: The National Forum on Youth Violence Prevention is a report created with support from the Office of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention (OJJDP), part of the U.S. Department of Justice and its Office of Justice Programs (OJP). The data from this report concludes that “the National Forum provides meaningful assistance to cities. . . . and generally believe that [participants in] their communities are stronger as a result.”
For more comprehensive data insights on how effective the collaborations at the National Forum are working, please feel free to check out the report to better understand how our communities are working to keep our kids safe.
