BENEFITING: COMPASS YOUTH COLLABORATIVE INC
Nine (9) years ago, on first day of the COMPASS Peacebuilder's Program, a teenage boy died in the arms of a COMPASS Peacebuilder responding to a gang shooting. Before that night countless other youth died due to violence. Since that tragic evening on the streets of Hartford CT COMPASS Peacebuilders have committed their lives to create peaceful communities and save young lives.
Today due to budget cuts, we will lose more than half of the Peacebuilders team that has kept youth violence at record lows.
Let's work together to ensure that the Peacebuilders can continue to broker peace, prevent youth violence and keep your community safe.
$33,000 allow for 1 COMPASS Peacebuilder to provide services to 24 youth and their families for an entire year. This is $7,000 less that to incarcerate a youth for the same amount of time.
