About Us YouthAlert! (YA!) U.S.A. - War Against Violence Corp., a U.S. non-profit corporation created on March 14, 2008, is a group of volunteers whose first goal is to help all youth "Survive and Thrive." Through advocacy and education, we hope more youth can live more peaceful lives. Ten of our core beliefs.
All youth are “equal” in importance, meaning, value, and worth, without exception.
All youth's “destiny” is to live a long and healthy life.
Every youth is special, unique, and “one-of-a-kind.”
Violence, bullying, and abuse (VBA) are the “Head of the Snake.” This is the number one root “problem” for youth.
We aim to “stay ahead of the curve,” meaning violence and conflict “prevention.”
Youth’s no. one job is to “survive” their youth. It is adults’ job to help them.
When youth get all the information, they usually make the right “choices.”
To truly “protect” and save “any youth,” we must protect and save “all youth,” or youth will always be “fair game.”
“Youth Peace” is one of the best “steppingstones” to “World Peace.”
Peace is the lynchpin to human “advancement,” human happiness, and human survival.
Our Vision: Youth Empowerment, Youth Equality, and Youth and Adult Teamwork.
Our Mission: World Peace Through "Youth Peace."
