According to the UCR data for 15-24 year olds, the male homicide rate   in 2013 was 18 times higher for Blacks than for Whites. Recent   programs like “Becoming a Man” developed by Chicago   nonprofit group Youth Guidance and policies like “My   Brother’s Keeper” initiated by President Obama have made   use of the data regarding Black crime rates in an attempt to find   potential solutions. Read the following two articles that present   recent crime data regarding urban youth crime and potential preventive   measure that can be taken.

Read “Youth Exposure to Violence Prevention Programs in a   National Sample” and “Preventing Youth Violence:   Opportunities for Action.”

In an essay of 750-1,000 words, address the following:

  1. According to David-Ferdon and Simon (2014), why is youth     violence such a critical problem, and what are the costs?
  2. Describe the study design used by Finkelhor et al. (2014).     Include the sample population, and data collection and analysis     methods. What were the limitations of this type of study? What were     the findings?
  3. Overall, what does the evidence show to be     true about youth violence prevention programs, and how should they     be implemented in the future to be most effective?

Be sure to cite three to five relevant scholarly sources and APA style
