Violence Intervention & Prevention (VIP) Program
Violence has a crippling and rippling effect on our families, communities, schools, businesses, and churches. Through education and awareness, our violence intervention program is paramount with today’s at-risk youth and young adults. The Violence Intervention & Prevention (VIP) Program is designed to prevent, reduce and intervene bullying and gun violence towards youth and young adults so that they will not become victims or perpetrators.
This violence intervention program curriculum addresses the realities behind the domestic, cultural, and mental health issues that influence the beliefs, thinking, attitudes, feelings, and behaviors associated with legal and illegal gun possession and violence.
Our curriculum is an innovative, engaging, and interactive program that teaches students to resolve conflict and anger issues by addressing their feelings and shifting their perspectives about their world, peers, and ultimately themselves in a positive direction. Our positive youth and adult mentoring helps students understand the responsibility they have towards school and public safety.
