Dayton celebrates International Day of Peace with walk



The walk was part of the national Job Corps student-led anti-violence initiative Youth 2 Youth: Partners 4 Peace.

The walk coincided with the Y2Y mission to promote anti-violence initiatives both on- and off-center.

Students started Youth 2 Youth, or Y2Y, with three basic aims: to talk about violence and aggression in their communities, to empower one another to prevent violence and aggression, and to share their stories and talk about solutions, according to a release.

Founded in the spring of 2015, Y2Y is a violence-prevention initiative created by and led by Job Corps students nationwide.

This initiative is the first national, student-created and student-led effort to curb youth violence on Job Corps centers, in their surrounding communities, and in the hometowns of students and graduates.

News Center 7’s Adam Marshall is working on this story, and will have more on it later today.
