After School Game Changer: lessons for violence prevention


Government and civil society urgently need to find new ways to prevent violence in South Africa. The Western Cape Government’s After School Game Changer (ASGC) aims to reduce risky and violent behaviour among young people. Understanding how this intervention works can inform other similar efforts.

This event will launch a new ISS policy brief on the ASGC. Findings on the thinking and practice that define the ASGC will be discussed. Speakers will also look critically at various local models that have been used to provide safe environments for children.
