LOVE at Citadel High

School:  Citadel High School
Board:  HRSB
Project Leader:  Rima Majaess

Our school will partner with LOVE (Leave Out ViolencE – a local violence prevention and intervention organization to help ensure that strong, young leaders are ready to take on challenges in their own lives and in their communities.  By addressing the cycle of violence with youth victims, witnesses, and perpetrators of violence, and supporting them to be leaders and educators in our communities, LOVE will be engaging in violence prevention and community capacity building in their most strategic forms.  Their positive psychology model helps youth to build self-esteem and fosters resiliency by teaching each youth to recognize and use their personal strengths.
