Students ready to spread nonviolence message throughout Youngstown area

YOUNGSTOWN — The city now has a small army of high school students ready to spread the message of proper decision making and nonviolence among youth.

More than three dozen students from seven Youngstown-area high schools spent several days at a Camp Fitch seminar learning various methods of good decision-making, stopping violence and making a difference in the community.

Those 43 students returned to the city today and shared with city leaders their plans for taking the message of nonviolence to the community.

The students, all members of the Community Initiative to Reduce Violence youth intervention program, met with Mayor Charles Sammarone, DeMaine Kitchen, the mayor’s chief of staff, police Chief Rod Foley, and some city council members.
