Adopt a family's holiday wish list from Accelerator's violence prevention program, Alive and Free. This program connects youth involved in gangs, violence and the juvenile justice system to services that help them stay alive and free. Our outreach workers support youth in identifying goals, such as engagement in education and employment, and overcoming the barrier to achieving these goals. Volunteers will be paired with a family and provided their holiday wish list.
