C.O.V.I.D. TM is designed to help frontline violence prevention and youth development specialists proactively understand and address gun violence and other insidious behaviors affecting the social and economic well-being of youth and the community. 


Our experience is that the goals of understanding and addressing violence, educational apathy, and chronic under-employment can rarely be achieved in an one-hour  workshop. The spread of insidious attitudes, values, beliefs, and behaviors is a real and powerful force, one which has structured the thinking, behavior, and actions of many individuals and groups. Understanding this contagion and effectively addressing it requires an equally real and powerful effort.

Our Three Day Session

What We Cover:

  • The origins of the disease and the way it spreads.

  • Ways to help youth develop immunity and stop the spread of the contagion.
