Bury The Violence - Not Our Children
This is a brand new bullying, gang prevention and intervention and prescription drug awareness program & campaign which will target youth from ages 7 and up, and will involve elementary, middle and high schools in Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River Counties, with the full support of local Law Enforcement and the tri-county school districts. Residents of Martin, St. Lucie and Indian River Counties will soon see the “BURY THE VIOLENCE” trailers and buses parked at schools, while Rhyant, a leading consultant in the areas of gangs, bullying, drug and prescription drug & illegal substance abuse, will give motivational and informational presentations to children, teachers and parents.
On occasions, Rhyant will be joined by his partner Dr. Joseph Jennings, (founder of RAW DAWGS Youth Program) and other celebrities, athletes, extraordinary business leaders, entrepreneurs and philanthropists…all who have joined this campaign in order to help save our community and our children.
(L to R) Pastor Jerome Rhyant (Entrepreneur, Executive Director and Founder of The Love Center Regeneration Ministries in Fort Pierce); Jamar Chaney (Local football sensation and budding NFL star and middle linebacker for the Philadelphia Eagles); John Jetson (Founder of Jetson Appliances and local Philanthropist); and Larry Lee Jr., (local businessman and founder of the Lighthouse Foundation), have come together to support Rhyant’s new campaign, “BURY THE VIOLENCE...NOT OUR CHILDREN” campaign.
“I couldn’t be more pleased to have these men and other partners on this campaign. This idea was birthed out of a vision I had many years ago; to create a gang intervention and prevention program on a local and national level in order to order to help one child, one family and one community at a time,” said Rhyant. “Gang violence and gang-related crimes are rising, especially in these hard-hit economic times. Our biggest threat is not outside terrorism, Ben Laden or the Taliban. Our biggest threat are these gangs getting hold of our kids, before we have a chance to mentor them and save them. This Bury The Violence campaign is taking it to the streets...Literally,” added Rhyant.
