300 YOUTH COR
[ 300 Youth COR ]
The 300 Youth COR is a youth leadership and violence prevention program for Baltimore City adolescents ages 15 – 19. The purpose of the program is to equip youth with the knowledge, skills, confidence and motivation to minimize their risk for involvement in violence and provide peer-to-peer de-escalation intervention during potentially violent situations. The program teaches youth to take responsibility for themselves and for the safety of their communities utilizing a self designed COR leadership and violence prevention curriculum that builds on three pillars: commitment, organization and responsibility. The context of the program is delivered to address the growing rates of youth violence in high crime neighborhoods throughout Baltimore City.
