Making Peace: Stories of Outreach and Connection
City of Evanston Youth Outreach Workers
Join Peaceable Cities Evanston for a special opportunity to hear the stories of the City of Evanston’s Youth and Young Adult Division outreach workers – whose mission is to offer young people with life challenges multiple closely aligned pathways to success. Through programs ranging from job training to one-on-one mentoring, the COE’s Youth and Young Adult team “reaches out” to at-risk and gang-involved youth, ages 14 to 26, linking them to the conventional world and needed services. From their personal experiences and perspectives, the outreach workers will share what it means – and what it takes – to restore individuals to productive places and safe spaces in our community and how making peace on the streets can radically change the lives of young people, keeping hope alive.
