The primary goal of the DtWT Challenge Program
is to prompt participating students to think about their role in society and to realize that they have a responsibility and the power to change their environment.
The second goal of the DtWT Challenge Program is to use the words of the students to motivate adults to respond to the young people’s personal commitments to seek solutions to violence. It is the hope of the National Campaign to Stop Violence that the commitments written will encourage adults in Chicago to work with these young people to reduce youth violence.
The National Campaign to Stop Violence has created various programs based on the ideas of thousands of young people which can be implemented in any community which has sufficient interest. The Campaign seeks individuals and businesses who want to make a difference in young people’s lives.
