It's Up2Me is an initiative specifically to empower individuals in urban communities to take ownership in the process to change their lifestyles, behavior and communication to affect change resulting in stronger, vibrant and safe communities - as well as their future. We believe that the success and stability of our future depends on being more responsible for "self" (our home life, actions, critical thinking skills, work habits, soft skills,verbal communication, behavior and finances):
1. in school,
3. their community,
5. with peers, and
6. in relationships.
We see an increase in domestic violence among youth (i.e. senseless killings and bullying) today. We want to educate them about the long lasting consequences of domestic violence and the traps to avoid. We discuss ways to avoid domestic violence and ways to effectively communicate with other.
