THE STORY:

LEAVE NO VETERAN BEHIND wrote -

Leave No Veteran Behind oversees a successful youth safety initiative called: Safe PassageFor three consecutive years, while working in some of America's most violent neighborhoods, LNVB's Safe Passage program has decreased disciplinary actions amongst students and decreased crime before and after school dismissal according to Chicago Public Schools and the Chicago Police Department.  

At the same time, the University of Chicago and its "5 Essentials Report" shows that LNVB's work has helped create positive learning environments throughout the Southside of Chicago by having students self-report that: “I feel there are adults that care for me in the community” and  “I feel safe going to and from school.”

Leave No Veteran Behind has also been cited as a model of "social innovation" because its leadership has been able to leverage the same resources allocated to them to decrease youth violence to also run one of the most effective Veteran transitional-work programs in the country; distributing more than $1 million dollars in wages to returning service members since 2010.

Looking into the future, Leave No Veteran Behind is poised to become a leader with respect to safe guarding thousands of students during the largest school closing in the history of American public education, while also running the largest Veteran transitional-work program in the nation; potentially employing more than 150 Veterans every school day.
