CAMBA's Cure Violence Program works with 16 – 24 year old at risk youths who are or may have potentially been involved in street violence, community residents, businesses and community-based organizations to implement Cure Violence: The Campaign to Stop the Shooting.

ESSENTIAL DUTIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES: The person filling this position is expected, under close supervision, to interact with clients, their families, and the community-at-large to promote the mission, vision and core services of the Cure Violence program.
