What We Do

We help prevent community violence through youth lead research and strategies.

The Greater Hartford Youth Leadership Academy (GHYLA) grew out of the original mission of Hartford Communities That Care: To prevent and reduce gun violence. The program brings together youth from middle and high schools from across Hartford for training, research, events, and field trips that support young people to be youth voice leaders in their community. The program is designed to support young people to develop key skills and knowledge.
