Youth programs in the arts can help prevent violent behaviours: professor

A summer camp program serving youth in east Scarborough—blocks from the site of a July 16 shooting that killed two and injured many times that—has the potential to save lives, says an associate professor of social work at the University of Windsor.

The DAREarts summer camp works with youths aged 9 to 19 years from schools in high-priority neighbourhoods, empowering them to make better life choices.
