What We Do

YouTurn (YT) is a violence prevention organization committed to using evidence-based strategies of suppression, intervention, prevention, mediation, and education to deter violence among adolescents and young adults aged12 to 25+ years. YT believes that the prevalence of violence (guns, gangs, domestic and intimate partner violence and sex-trafficking) is a key indicator of the health and well-being of our community. YT understands that youth are resilient, and with the support of community-based service providers, youth can "turn their lives around" and chart a new course of personal achievement and success.

Interesting Info

YouTurn has provided 1-on-1 intensive case management for more than 250 adolescents and young adults and mentoring and advocacy for more than 2,000 HS students.
Homicide is the 3rd leading cause of death for young people, ages 10 to 24.
We strive to end violence that negatively impacts the lives of adolescents and young adults in metropolitan Omaha.
