Watch Club is a school- and community-based yourh “watch” program initiative. The program allows youth to be more visible in schools and communities.
The Watch Club Initiative began at Warren Central High School (WCHS) in 2006. The goals of the program were to get youth involved in having a voice in their school and neighborhood and speak out about negative activities that impact the school and their community. Youth were trained in a 20-week curriculum that was led by a teacher trained in peer mediation, and focused on teaching the students conflict resolution skills. Participants would be encouraged to look for and report negative behaviors such as gun violence, substance abuse, bullying, gang involvement, and other crimes.
