Do The Write Thing | March 10, 2017

All across America, students are responding to the problem of youth violence. The Do the Write Thing Challenge gives middle school students an opportunity to examine the impact of youth violence on their lives in discussions and in written form by communicating what they think should be done to change our culture of violence. By encouraging students to make personal commitments to do something about the problem, the program ultimately seeks to empower them to break the cycles of violence in their homes, schools and neighborhoods.
