The UM Office of Research July newsletter features a moving and informative article, History of Violence, that highlights the YVPC and its associated project, Youth Empowerment Solutions (YES). The article includes results from a study that documented a reduction in assaults in the YVPC intervention area, and positive findings from the evaluation of a brief emergency department violence prevention program that was one of the YVPC initiatives.  It also includes an interview with a young man from Flint who gives his account of how the YES program changed his perspective on his own city.

Read the article as well as other UM research features on the UM Research newsletter website, and be sure to visit the YES website as well to learn more about the program!
