Co-operation Ireland, Global Peace Foundation, along with co-convening partner, the Administration for Children and Families Region 2 are piloting an established cross-community engagement model in Jersey City, New Jersey. This youth engagement approach builds community cohesion in challenging urban environments and inoculates youth against violence and extremism. The purpose of this pilot work is to demonstrate a national model for replication and measure the empirical impact on identity-based attitudes and behaviors.
