The Youth Empowerment through Conflict Resolution program works with young people in Baltimore to find peaceful resolutions to conflict in their lives. Participants learn to use tools from the Help Increase the Peace Program as well as other community building skills.

Working in under-resourced schools, the program helps young people deal with violent and impoverished neighborhoods, learn about conflict resolution and human rights, and get the support they need to become educated and engaged citizens. 

Through education, we hope to instill a sense of confidence in Baltimore youths – confidence that they can make a better tomorrow for themselves and their communities.
