In Chicago, the Chicago Public Schools are asking for more mentors. The CPS request for more mentors parallels the CDC’s recommendations to reduce violence. The CDC recommends the following approaches:
(1) build strong families
(2) teach young children to peacefully resolve conflicts
(3) provide mentors to serve as guides and role models for positive youth behavior
(4) reduce social and economic causes of violence in young people’s environments
(5) ensure spiritual or character-based training for young children and reinforce that training throughout their early teen years.
