ABOUT WILLIS YOUNG
Willis Young, known as "Young" to his friends, was a charismatic and open-minded young man. For two and a half years, Young worked as a Hospital Responder for the Kings Against Violence Initiative (KAVI) in Brooklyn, New York. In his position he provided support, comfort and resources to young men and women suffering from violent injuries at King's County Hospital. Young used his knowledge and hope to give these youth the opportunity to change, to provide them with the comfort they needed to survive their hospital stay, and the support they needed after returning home. He did so by defusing discussions of retaliations and providing solutions for the self-empowerment needed by these youth. Although he tragically lost his life to violence in August 2015, NNHVIP remembers the powerful impact that Young had on his community, by recognizing his colleagues who are having an impact on theirs.

APPLICATIONS ARE DUE ON FRIDAY, MAY 21, 2018. DECISIONS WILL BE ANNOUNCED JUNE 19, 2018.
