THE STORY:

My goal is to help a friend of mine to raise $20,000 for his non-profit organization by February 28, 2011. The project is titled "The Youth Violence Systems Project" (YVSP). It's a study that incorporates academic, institutional and community perspectives on the interrelated causes of youth violence in Boston. Through a community learning process, YVSP is capturing the collective thoughts of three high-violence neighborhoods in Boston (Uphams Corner, Bowdoin-Geneva, and Grove Hall) regarding youth violence: who is involved, how is the violence committed, what are the tools involved, and why it happened. We are asking how violence is happening right now and, from that insight, evaluating causality. This community understanding is being combined with academic research and institutional data to create a virtual laboratory – or a computer model – that simulates the expected results of various intervention strategies on youth violence. The YVSP computer model will enable a cross-section of stakeholders – everyone from neighborhood youth to policy makers – to analyze the effectiveness of various youth violence intervention strategies (based on different assumptions) and engage in a higher quality of dialogue about these strategies.

My friend gave up his high salary as a partner in a law firm to work on this project with very limited budget under it's sponsor Emmanual Gospel Center. They are facing a funding short-fall and need to raise the money to continue by this February. My company has pledged a total fund matching of up to $2,500 if money is raise via crowdrise.org. Please help if you can and feel free to leave comments and suggestions.
