Southern School of Engineering Conducting National Youth Violence Prevention Week Activities
March 21-25, 2011

RALEIGH, N.C. (March 21, 2011) – The National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere (SAVE) and The Guidance Group (www.guidance-group.com), are proud to be founding partners of the National Youth Violence Prevention Week (NYVPW) Campaign, celebrating its ninth year.  The Southern School of Engineering (SSOE) SAVE Chapter will celebrate NYVPW from March 21-25, 2011.  The goal of this campaign is to raise awareness and to educate students, teachers, school administrators, counselors, school resource officers, school staff, parents, and the public on effective ways to prevent or reduce youth violence.  

During this week-long national education initiative, various activities will demonstrate the positive role young people can have in making their schools and communities safer.  The Southern School of Engineering SAVE Chapter, advised by Minnie Harrington, will conduct a different activity each day of NYVPW, including:

•   Scavenger Hunt involving information about SAVE.
•   “Manage Your Anger, Don’t let it Manage You” poetry contest.
•   “Resolve Conflicts Peacefully” art contest.
•   “Promote Safety With Teen Safe Driving” poster board contest.

Thanks to the Allstate Foundation, the National Association of SAVE presented a grant to SSOE earlier this school year to increase youth safety and promote Teen Safe Driving.  Local Allstate Agent Ava Alston Brownlee will be a featured guest and contest judge this week at the school.  With support from Allstate agents and employee volunteers, SAVE chapters are providing leadership in their schools and communities to ensure that all students will be encouraged and empowered with healthy life skills while engaging in educational activities and opportunities to promote teen safe driving and youth safety.

“By empowering teens to become smart driving activists in their schools and communities, we hope to reverse the staggering statistics,” said Allstate representative Ava Alston Brownlee of The Alston Agency.  “Through The Allstate Foundation, we seek to develop innovative, teen-focused approaches to raise awareness of the issue and, ultimately, to help save lives and reduce injuries.”

Join the NYVPW campaign to show that our youth and our communities are committed to being violence-free! For further information on activities planned in your area contact National SAVE at (866) 343-SAVE (7283) or visit www.nationalsave.org.

About the National Association of Students Against Violence Everywhere:
SAVE started at West Charlotte High School in Charlotte, N.C. in 1989 following the tragic death of a student who was trying to break up a fight at an off-campus party.  Students met first to console each other, then as an organization to promote violence prevention and to work together to prevent future incidents from occurring.  SAVE provides education about the effects and consequences of violence and helps provide safe activities for students, parents and communities.  For more information on SAVE or starting a SAVE chapter, visit www.nationalsave.org, or contact SAVE at (866) 343-SAVE to receive free start-up materials and guidance.
