City of Philadelphia’s Strategic Plan to Prevent Youth Violence

If there were a bill of rights for Philadelphia’s children, the first and most important would be the right to be safe: at home, at school, and on the streets.  Every young person in Philadelphia has a fundamental right to live in a safe neighborhood with the opportunity to realize a fulfilling adult life.  To prevent youth violence in Philadelphia, we will strive to create safe environments that support the development of healthy, thriving, productive citizens through a city-wide, multi-disciplinary approach aligning prevention, intervention, enforcement, re-entry, and data evaluation efforts.
