Safe Corners Building Logo   Street Outreach Program

 

   Safe Corners is a street outreach program that is designed to reduce violence, create the opportunity for peace, and pave the way for youth in the community to connect to positive relationships and opportunities.  Safe Corners Peace Advocates provide outreach services to Brockton youth ages 10-24.  Peace Advocates work in the community, on the streets, in the schools, and places in the city where youth gather.  Peace Advocates work to build positive relationships with youth, teach alternatives to violence, model nonviolence, take steps to prevent retaliatory acts, and assist in mediating conflicts on the street.  Peace Advocates can work to connect a youth with services in the community including mentoring, mental health, wellness services, employment training, referrals to employment opportunities, social supports and educational services.  Safe Corners can also provide training and information on mediating conflict, community education on gang awareness and gang prevention and can help to provide support to victims of violence.
