Youth Over Guns

The Youth Over Guns Initiative: A Glimpse into Transformation

Founded by a group of individuals who have personally felt the devastating impact of gun violence, the “Youth Over Guns” initiative emerged from a shared commitment to prevent other families from experiencing the same heartbreak. With a vision for change and a dedication to creating a safer future, this initiative is helping young individuals develop the life skills and leadership qualities they need to rise above the challenges that surround them.

Our mission is clear: to empower and educate the youth, to raise awareness about the devastating impact of gun violence, and to provide support and resources that make a real difference. We believe in the potential of our young generation, and we are determined to equip them with the knowledge and skills to overcome the challenges they face.

Through advocacy, mentorship, and educational programs, we work tirelessly to create communities where guns are not a threat, and where the future is filled with opportunities, not fear. Together, we strive to honor our son’s memory by turning tragedy into transformation and saving lives one young person at a time.
