Our children today face so many obstacles. The Roundtable of St. Lucie County is the only entity that brings together executive level community leaders – from the school system, law enforcement, government, social service agencies and more – to address these obstacles and make a real, lasting difference in the lives of St. Lucie County children. Established in 1995, the Roundtable is committed to addressing key risk factors that lead to delinquency, crime and other problem behaviors in children, and strengthening assets to implement initiatives that support children’s success. The Roundtable operates through “Networks” (or subcommittees) that research specific problem areas and identify best practice solutions. Roundtable members collaborate to assess, plan and implement evidence-based and data-driven strategies intended to improve outcomes for youth. 
Introducing IGNITE Youth Alliance!  
We are proud to introduce IGNITE Youth Alliance as the new name and program philosophy of the Restoring the Village Youth Initiative. Thank you to everyone that contributed ideas and suggestions.
This name change is part of a larger effort to rebrand and expand our program beyond Fort Pierce to include all of St. Lucie County, initiating services to girls and young women, as well as building capacity to better respond to victims of gang violence and trauma.
Changing our name does not mean we are no longer part of the village of community agencies and dedicated individuals that have been and continue to be, essential in providing services and bringing about important system improvements. Indeed, we need the village more than ever and the village needs us!
IGNITE will continue to implement the five core components of the Comprehensive Gang Model to reduce gang-related violence and victims of gang-related violence, only casting a wider net to IGNITE hope and change in more St. Lucie County youth!
