Creating opportunity and reducing violence for young people remains a top priority for Mayor Jeri Muoio and the City of West Palm Beach. Under the leadership of Mayor Muoio, Coordinator of Community Initiatives Kevin Jones launched The Mayor’s Village Initiative to focus on the challenges facing young people, particularly African American boys and young men in specific areas of the City. Right now, the initiative’s focus is on young people living in the City’s North End. The “village” consists of government agencies, businesses, concerned citizens, the faith community, non-profits, philanthropy, and schools. The City acts as an umbrella to pull together its vast resources to help address this issue.
