LOVE's programs are designed to help youth overcome the challenges of violence in their lives and develop skills to become leaders in ending violence. In LOVE, young people who have been victims, witnesses or perpetrators of violence attend a series of weekly training sessions. They learn to use their personal experiences with gangs, drugs, weapons, racism, bullying, domestic violence and self-harm to help other youth make positive choices and together build safer communities.
LOVE was founded with a vision of what it takes to help a young person overcome adversity and become successful. Over the years, we have become an effective, results-oriented organization uniquely capable of making a difference in the lives of youth.
At LOVE we believe that all young people can achieve positive change. We are relentlessly dedicated to young people, re-engaging them, teaching them to learn from past experiences, and to experientially create success for themselves, their peers and their communities. We believe that every young person can lead positive change in their own lives when offered support and opportunity.
LOVE has offices in Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal, Halifax, New York and Eilat, Israel. Visit www.leaveoutviolence.com for more information about our other offices.
