Youth Advocate Programs partners with the City of Charlotte and Mecklenburg County to provide Alternatives to Violence through street outreach to targeted areas of the city, specifically in the Beatties Ford Road corridor and West Blvd./Remount Road.

We disrupt violence by mediating conflict and preventing retaliation.  Additionally, we engage the community in events and public education designed to change cultural norms.  Our program also provides individualized interventions, such as support with housing, employment or in addressing trauma, that target individuals aged 14-25 identifed as most at risk of violence.
