Community-School Partnerships

SafetyNet’s Community-School Partnerships Working Group engages with leadership of schools in DC to reduce violent crime committed by juveniles.

Areas of work include:

  • Providing support for and mentorship of “at risk” students in an effort to reduce the likelihood of them committing violent crimes.
  • Raising awareness among school leadership of violent crimes when committed by their students.
  • Advocating for school programs that promote non-violent behavior and social responsibility.
  • Identifying and promoting best practices of schools that have model programs.
