Sacramento Minority Youth Violence Prevention (SMYVP) Collective
The mission of SMYVP is to prevent youth violence by creating a true web of support for minority youth in Sacramento. Member organizations representing law enforcement, public health, education, health care and community organizations work to achieve documented improvements in criminal justice, health, and education outcomes among minority youth in Sacramento.
SMYVP members build trust and collaboration with each other in order to better integrate public health, social service and community policing practices. SMYVP also supports SHOP - a structured violence prevention curriculum that supports youth development and is presented at in-school and out-of-school programs.
Together SMYVP members partner to increase youth linkages to local organizations so that youth can better access services and community programs that foster resiliency and afford youth new opportunities to practice self-care, leadership development, community service, and advocacy.
