Abstract

Established in 1993 as one of the nation's first state school safety centers, the North Carolina Department of Juvenile Justice and Delinquency Prevention - Center for Prevention of School Violence serves as a resource center and think tank for efforts that promote safer schools and fosters positive youth development. The Center's efforts in support of safer schools are directed at understanding the problems of school violence and developing solutions to them. The Center focuses on ensuring that schools function so that every student who attends does so in environments that are safe and secure, free of fear and conducive to learning. Positive youth development efforts are emphasized as the Center focuses beyond th school into the community and works in support of youth-serving programs and agencies which target the development of attitudes, behaviors, and conditions that enable youth to grow and become productive members of society.
