Throughout this year, we will be highlighting individuals or groups that have impacted our work over the last 50 years.
Former POV Prevention Manager
Rashad Beal is a former Violence Prevention Manager with POV from 2017-2020. He worked in the Prevention department and helped facilitate the Schools Over Violence curriculum with middle school and high school students in central and South LA. He also implemented the Boys/Men's group Men Over Violence focused on ways male identified people could help end violence against others within the community.
"My favorite part of working with POV was the lessons I learned from women and being able to do a lot of self reflection on the ways I had intentionally or unintentionally caused harm to people and find ways to reach out to other boys and men in a language they could understand"
Rashad now lives in Dallas, Texas with his wife and 3 children and is still working with and mentoring young adults with City Year Dallas as an Impact Manager within the Dallas Independent School District.
