Challenging and motivating youth to make their communities and schools safer places is one of the most effective strategies to reduce delinquency and youth victimization. The National Youth Crime Prevention Conference is a vehicle that recognizes the valuable contributions youth can make to the crime prevention effort.

Youth participants will lead the nation as effective problem solvers as they address some of the most critical health and safety issues faced by youth today.
