Collegiate Scholars Youth-Led Symposium
High school students gather to discuss causes and solutions to youth violence
About 60 Chicago high school students gathered on the University of Chicago campus in late March to discuss their thoughts on the major causes of youth violence in the city and ideas on how to curtail it. The “Uprooting the War from Within” symposium drew representatives from CeaseFire Illinois and students from area high schools.
The University’s Collegiate Scholars Program hosted the youth-led symposium at Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelly Biological Sciences Learning Center on March 23, 2013.
