YWCA Boston's Youth/Police Dialogues bring together youth and police officers to curb conflict and increase trust and cooperation in neighborhoods of Boston most affected by violence and crime.

Youth/Police Dialogues bring together racially and ethnically diverse groups of 15-20 youth and 6-8 police officers for 6 sessions conducted by professional facilitators. A lack of meaningful communication between youth and police is a serious public safety concern. We seek to improve these relationships by helping participants break down stereotypes and communication barriers and build mutual respect and understanding.
