Virginia Gang Prevention Program (VGPP) Overview
Virginia Gang Prevention Programs has a five year history of successful regional Gang Prevention Conferences in cooperation with Federal, State, and City speakers.
VGPP Coalition of regional services is collaborating to provide intervention and prevention programs designed to reach at-risk youth who are targets for gang recruitment and activities.
The VGPP training team provides various Train the Trainers workshops to help attendants enhance their own programs, by sharing various applications of their own Gang Reduction Programs.
Gang Reduction Programs are a holistic process for generational drug involved families whom we haven’t been able to reach previously. Prevention is aimed at Gang Influenced youth and Gang Intervention Programs, will address Gang Involved youth.
Under the VGPP leadership, the team trainers unite neighborhood networks that link organizations that provide direct services to gang influenced youth. In addition, VGPP helps with capacity building to emerging neighborhood networks across the region.
