The VIP is an effort to stem the epidemic of youth violence through prevention, intervention and advocacy.  Through the innovative strategies of the VIP campaign, a wide spread population of youth from at-risk communities, as well as throughout the County, become leaders, and spread the word about alternatives to violence.
