We are approaching summer and NYC has doubled SYEP opportunities however we NEED more. 100 Jobs for 6 Weeks is an initiative P4P has speaking directly to the BOOM of small businesses and youth lack summer options. We CAN have small businesses employ a youth 20 hours a week for 6 weeks. Let's see if the Mayors office takes me up on my offer to assist a plan to include smal business. Last year we got 30 job offerings our first year ... together we can EMPLOY and ENCOURAGE our youths.
Our primary mission is to combat violence by engaging individuals and communities to recognize, reform, and reduce the challenges facing our high-risk youth and neighborhoods. A member of the GVAM Coalition, P.E.A.C.E. for Peace (P4P) began the festival in 2013 as a means to create awareness, education and empowerment for individuals and communities during the most poignant time of year for our youths. We will continue to sponsor activities addressing conflict resolution, unity, safety laws, personal empowerment, professional development, summer solutions, teamwork initiatives, and alternatives to violent behaviors for individuals and families.
We are approaching June and the Gun Violence Awareness Month is on the way!! May 1st we will open with the "Not My Hood" March led by GVAM Chair Councilman Jumaane Williams. #GVAM#Peace #Chooselife
The New York City Gun Violence Task Force is hosting a Gun Violence Awareness Month (GVAM) kickoff, the Not In My Hood March and Resource & Health Fair on May 31, beginning at 9:30 a.m.
The 4TH Annual “Not in My Hood” March and Resource & Health Fair held in conjunction with Council Member Jumaane D. Williams, will be used to give our respective communities an opportunity to speak out against the senseless violence that occurs in Central Brooklyn neighborhoods- particularly among vulnerable youth. Please join Grand Marshall, Gama Droville, an innocent 13 year old boy who was caught in a violent crossfire as he walked along Flatbush Avenue and turned his experience into an inspiration for us all.
The march will begin at the Flatbush Garden Apartments (Foster Avenue between New York Avenue & Brooklyn Avenue) and will end at Meyer Levin (Ralph Avenue between Tilden Avenue and Beverley Road) with a variety of educational, employment and afterschool/summer activities opportunities for youth, as well as a health fair.
