School shootings appear to be on the rise. According to some sources, there have already been 17 school shootings in 2018. That’s twice as many as the first two months of last year. What is causing this rise in school shootings? Is there a solution to this problem?

Kevin’s guest today is Nate Landis with Urban Youth Collaborative. According to Nate Landis, there is a good solution that would solve gun violence in schools and it isn’t gun control. The real solution is to get churches involved in schools.

Nate Landis and the Urban Youth Collaborative sponsor student-led Christian groups that work their schools and communities to impact them for Christ. Urban Youth Collaborative (UYC) is a coalition of 45 church partners that support student-initiated and student-led faith clubs at 97 middle and high school campuses in San Diego County and motivational assemblies in Mexico.  Students serve physical and spiritual food to over three thousands of their friends each week and look for practical ways to make a difference in their local communities. In 2017, young people generated over 30,000 hours of voluntary community service in Southern California and around the world!

Tune in to hear how Nate Landis believes the issue of school shooting can be solved by students from the inside out. If you want to find out more about Urban Youth Collaborative, head over to https://www.uyc.org. You can also learn how to get involved to change your community and/or your school.
