M.O.V.E. (Mind Over Violence Everywhere) Workshop Model


Youth violence is a loosely defined issue that includes physical blows/wounds, neglect, sexual assault, verbal or psychological abuses, and more. It has been identified as a significant issue in previous projects undertaken by Canada's Public Health Association and its participants. The M.O.V.E. (Mind Over Violence Everywhere) workshop is a literacy and health education program for out-of-school youth that focuses on violence prevention. This workshop design aims to increase awareness of violence and devleop skills to prevent violence, increase literacy through non-traditional learning activities, and encourage youth to participate actively and assist the facilitator in recording the workshop responses.
