LOVE’s programs are designed to help youth overcome the challenges of violence in their LOVE BClives and develop skills to become leaders in ending violence. In LOVE, young people who have been victims, witnesses or perpetrators of violence attend a series of weekly training sessions. Youth learn to use their personal experiences with gangs, drugs, weapons, racism, bullying, domestic violence and self-harm to help other youth make positive choices and together build safer communities.

Hawa Mire, LOVE Program Director and Miranda Rutty, LOVE Youth Leader (and summer staff) will be co-facilitating a workshop titled ‘LOVE: Navigating Our Experiences of Violence’ which will look at deconstructing violence through an anti-oppressive lens. Come join LOVE in an interactive experiential workshop as together we navigate and negotiate our intersecting life experiences while creating space to reflect on the things we share.
