Community Violence Prevention Program

 Employers Are Making a Difference this summer for Our Youth

Kingdom Community, Inc. in conjunction with Circle Family Health Care Network participated with the Youth Employment Program (YEP) initiative that provided 80 youth from the Austin community with part-time jobs, mentoring, and social/emotional skill development. There was also employment provided for sixteen (16) mentors and two (2) administrative coordinators to manage this program component.

The goal of the Initiative is to reduce risk factors and promote protective factors associated with violence through the creation of jobs for community youth, adults and professionals that promote community wellness and healthy behaviors, youth and parent leadership, and healthy, caring community environment through a wide range of community-based services for youth and young adults.
