According to the U.S. Census Bureau, written in 2003, youths in the U.S. represent 26 % of the population and account for 50% of the victims of violent acts. Research shows that regular exposure to violence is associated with psychological difficulties, language and development skills associated with poor education and juvenile justice problems. According to (The U.S. Department of Education, 1997) and (Dodge, Pettit, Bates, 1997; Kendall-Tackett, Williams & Finkelhor, 1993) “exposure to community violence is twice more likely amongst African Americans than any other race.” Because of these statistics and known facts, the non-profit seeks funding and many other avenues in order to train and educate youth.
