Local Youth-Led Coalition

Young Leaders Against Violence

About YLAV

Young Leaders Against Violence (YLAV) is a local youth-led coalition focused on dating and sexual abuse awareness and prevention. The group is made up of high school (9th-12th grade) aged students from Kent County that share a common interest in eliminating violence from our communities. The group meets to organize events, social media campaigns, movie screenings, and meetings with community leaders. YLAV is mentored by the leadership of Safe Haven Ministries.

Applications for the 2022-2023 academic year are open now through July 1.
