Description
The FY 2015 Unified Youth Violence Prevention Training and Technical Assistance program is designed to support prevention and reduction of youth violence and promotion of child, youth and family wellbeing in sites through strategic and focused TTA. The UVYP TTA provider will achieve this by brokering and/or directly making available a full range of high-quality, cost effective, and comprehensive training and technical assistance resources to the 33 communities and tribes funded as part of Defending Childhood, the Forum and the CBVP Program. The signature program grantees work in partnership with OJJDP and other federal agencies to address these issues but rely on expert, targeted technical assistance and enhanced peer to peer communication and support to reach their goals. Preventing and ameliorating youth violence requires a shared framework to address the multiple factors that impact violence and victimization at the individual, peer, family, community, and societal levels, a deep understanding of institutional and structural racism, the impact and consequences of unresolved historical trauma, the interconnectedness of the various forms of violence and of community-based and systems change work as well as an ability to engage youth and families in the development and provision of TTA including men engaged in stopping men’s violence against women and children. The TTA provider will also be responsible to work with grantees to ensure that approaches to violence prevention, intervention, and treatment are trauma-informed and based on an understanding of how adverse consequences of trauma impact children’s social and emotional development.
