Neighborhood Violence Intervention

Safe Kids Make Safe Streets

The Columbus Urban League’s Neighborhood Violence Intervention team aims to keep our youth safe and on-track to healthy, productive lives. We connect with several hundred youth annually and deescalate several documented incidents on a monthly basis, helping to reduce crime and gang-related violence.

Our team knows first-hand what it’s like and we respond realistically and holistically to the lure of gang life through innovative intervention — encouraging youth involvement in work readiness activities, academics or recreation.

Research consistently finds that mentors and positive role models play a critical role in youth success. This is particularly true in low opportunity communities, where data indicates fewer two-parent households.
