March 3, 2011 - PRLog -- ST. LOUIS – The University of Missouri–St. Louis Department of Criminology & Criminal Justice, along with the Division of Continuing Education and the Des Lee Collaborative Vision, presents the 10th Annual Youth Violence Prevention Conference. Speakers and guests will gather at UMSL’s J.C. Penney Conference Center on Thursday, April 21, 2011, to examine juvenile victimization and prevention strategies.

Research findings from St. Louis and other cities will identify the extent and type of victimizations occurring both in the community and in schools. Evidence-based policies and programs for violence reduction will also be discussed. Speakers will examine three main themes: youth victimization in the community, youth victimization and bullying at school, and strategies for reducing violence and school and in the community.

Attendance is beneficial for professionals who work with at-risk youth, teachers, counselors, public health workers, probation officers, youth advocates, law enforcement officers, students, and anyone interested in the welfare of children and youth.

The conference begins at 8 a.m., April 21, with registration and a continental breakfast. Speakers will address the group throughout the day, with a couple of breaks and lunch. The program will wrap up with a social hour starting at 2:30 p.m. A $35 registration fee includes admittance to the program, breakfast and lunch.
