The Central American Coalition for Youth Violence Prevention


The Central American Coalition for Youth Violence Prevention is a multi-sector and interdisciplinary network of sixteen Central American civil society organizations seeking to engender an integrated and comprehensive policy approach  to youth gang violence.   The organizations which comprise the coalition conduct field research, monitor human rights in barrios effected by gang violence,  or engage in a variety of cultural, technological and educational programs and/or provision of direct social services for at risk  or gang involved youth. They share, despite differences in philosophical approaches and programming emphasis, a commitment to work in concert to promote adoption of public policies favoring prevention, reinsertion and rehabilitation for youth and communities affected by gang violence.
