Keep the Peace

The Keep the Peace Program is a youth gun violence awareness and prevention program developed in cooperation with the Hampton Police Division, Hampton City Schools, Commonwealth Attorney’s Office, Sentara Careplex Hospital, and recently the addition of Hampton Fire & Rescue. This program curriculum is taught in the 9th grade classroom and exposes youth on the effects of gun violence and discusses the options to avoid a violent situation.
