LOVE was started because violence had deeply affected the life of a remarkable woman: Twinkle Rudberg. In 1972, her husband was stabbed to death while trying to help a woman who was being attacked for her purse. To further compound the horror and senselessness of this act, the attacker was a 14 year old boy who was both homeless and under the influence of drugs. The young boy was a runaway, who recently joined a gang. Clearly this tragedy began long before he took the life of an innocent man. - See more at:

In response to this tragedy, Twinkle decided something had to be done to help troubled youth like this lost teenager. She wanted to create an organization that would address and focus on the causes of teen violence which include bullying, neglect, isolation, lack of mentorship, gang violence, drug abuse, abuse at home, and self abuse. In 1993 she created LOVE, originating in Montreal. It has since then become a respected and proven program in Canada and is reaching out world wide with its proprietary programming. - See more at:

LOVE programs are now held in New York City, a pilot program in Seattle, in Canada in Halifax, Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver, the Middle East with Arab and Israeli children, and most recently a pilot program in Uganda. - See more at:

LOVE is looking for support from those who want to take pride in growing a movement that will help youth cope and flourish in society today. - See more at:
