Shannon Community Safety Initiative

Shannon Community Safety Initiative provides case management, youth leadership training, and job opportunities through a city-wide, inter- agency violence prevention program serving Lynn youth ages 14-24. 

Using a Positive Youth Development approach, the program offers intensive case management, school & court   advocacy; and mentoring & life coaching.

The program includes work opportunities and training as a way to develop and strengthen character. 

Recognizing that supporting the family also supports the youth, family assistance and referral services are also provided in our efforts to effect lasting change.

Risk Factors?

Youth at highest risk include those:

-- With a history of arrests, interpersonal violence and significant alcohol or drug use;

-- Who have friends, siblings or close relatives with criminal or gang involvement;

-- That live in a neighborhood with high crime rates, prominent gang presence, and easy access to drugs or firearms;

-- That have a school history of suspensions, expulsions, absenteeism, and low academic achievement.
