Violence Prevention

Violence Prevention

The Department is now in the second year of addressing teen violence through a theatre project. Professional actors engage adolescents, through the theatre arts, in a discussion centered on violence in their community and its impact on their lives. This is followed by three weeks of interactive workshops that include discussion, writing, art, and photography. Presentations are scheduled in schools, community-based organizations, and throughout the BronxCare Health System.
