Youth Community Educators Program (YCEP)

YCEP was designed to fulfill Project PAVEs vision of having a youth-directed and youth-driven program and given the necessary resources and skills to reach an audience well beyond those in their schools and community groups about ending domestic and sexual violence.

What is YCEP?

YCEP identifies 10-12 high school and early college students each year and trains them on PAVE's relationship violence prevention education curriculum and empowered to do peer-to-peer violence prevention education at schools, community groups, community events, and to create specific relationship violence prevention education projects within their schools.

YCEP Outcomes

  • YCEP participants receive at least 20 hours of prevention education training
  • YCEP participants reach more than 1,000 youth and community members with prevention education.  
  • YCEP participants design and implement training within their school.
