We have a new name!
In the past year, we were in the process of moving into the next phase of the initiative and have decided to change our name from the Youth Violence Prevention Network (YVPN) to the Youth Action Network (YAN)!
We have changed our name because we have shifted our focus to center youth voice and youth leadership. We still plan to embody what our focus has always been, a strength based public health approach to overall youth well-being (which will still play a role in violence prevention).
We are currently in the planning phase with youth and adult allies and plan to release our work and new website in the Fall of 2021! Follow us on Instagram and Facebook to follow our journey!
