Where's Daryl? Toolkit

This is a Project. It was designed by Students and faculty, Designmatters, ArtCenter College of Design. It is dated 2011–present.

With firearm homicide a leading cause of death among Los Angeles youth aged 15 to 24, ArtCenter College of Design collaborated with LA’s School District to design the Where’s Daryl? gun violence prevention program. Based on Daryl, a fictional middle-school student who misses out on life’s events because he is jailed for bringing a gun to school, the downloadable toolkit contains 8 lessons filled with activities and short videos to spark peer-to-peer dialogue and critical thinking about situations in which guns could negatively impact their lives.
