According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) report, youth violence is common. Homicide is the third leading cause of death for young people ages 10-24 and the leading cause of death for non-Hispanic Black or African American youth. Emergency departments treat over 800 young people for physical assault-related injuries each day.

Youth violence is costly. In 2020, youth homicides and nonfatal physical assault-related injuries resulted in an estimated $122 billion annually in costs, including medical care, lost work, and quality of life. This estimate does not include costs to the criminal justice system.

Conference Theme: "Good Education is the key to success," -- Joshua 1:8.

Objective: "Get your college education or the equivalent, solve conflict without violence, say no to drugs, crimes, violence, or bullying, and plan to be a productive member of society."

Date: Saturday, July 13, 2024, starting at 10 am and with Livestream.

Join the national campaign to reduce youth violence. For more information, visit our church website. and visit the YPD Youth Conference 2024 link.
