The Shannon Community Safety Initiative
The Shannon Community Safety Initiative offers outreach, case management, youth leadership training, and job opportunities through a city-wide, inter- agency violence prevention program serving Lynn youth ages 14-24. LifeScene is the fiscal manager of the collaborative and also provides programmatic oversight.
Using a Positive Youth Development approach, LifeScene’s program delivers intensive case management, school and court advocacy, mentoring, and life coaching. The program also includes work opportunities and training as a means to developing and strengthening character.
Recognizing that supporting the family also supports the youth, family assistance and referral services are also included in our efforts to effect lasting change.
