This CD provides a toolkit for youth to use in learning about and developing projects for addressing and preventing various types of violence they are likely to encounter.
STOP the Violence (Students Taking on Prevention) is a peer-to-peer outreach initiative designed to empower youth to recognize, report, and reduce the potential for youth violence. Sponsored by the Family, Career, and Community leaders of America, Inc. (FCCLA), STOP the Violence is a national peer education program. Its goals are to empower students with attitudes, skills, and resources that will make their schools safer; engage youth in efforts to prevent youth violence; use peer education to increase youth awareness of and involvement in strategies that reduce youth violence; and reduce the potential for youth violence in schools, families, and neighborhoods. The toolkit presented in this CD provides introductory information about the STOP the Violence program; suggestions for getting started; and numerous tools that can help advisers, chapter officers, and other chapter members implement projects that will have a positive impact on individuals, families, and communities. Components of the CD focus on how to stop bullying violence, conducting and promoting conflict resolution, the prevention of dating violence, the prevention of domestic violence, and the prevention of Internet violence. Each of these sections contains a power-point lesson, suggestions for projects, and a pretest as a means of measuring knowledge gained from the lesson. Separate sections of the toolkit address peer-to-peer activities, public relations, and resources.
