The program was started because of the increasing violence in the Newhallville section which played a great part in the life of Thompson st and surrounding areas youth. With that being said, Javaughn Harris & Caprice Taylor started a Youth Led program in which the youth could be keep from violence by having fun and educational things to do such as going to the British Art museum , Maritime Aquarium and Helping in the community by participating in the youth walk on the New Haven Green.
