Advocating for Our Future: A Working Agenda for St. Louis Youth

Background Information

Young people are in the age group at highest risk for engaging in violent behavior and becoming victims of violence. As summer approaches, they become even more vulnerable. Violent crime rates rise in the summer and youth are more likely to be victimized during hours when they are not in school. Unfortunately there is no easy fix for this problem or the related issues of academic failure, lack of jobs or job training for youth, limited recreation opportunities and a broken health and mental health system that youth find extremely difficult to navigate. The document addresses four crucial unmet needs for youth — Education, Health Jobs and Recreation.      Download complete Agenda here.
