Youth Violence Prevention Network Programs

Youth Violence Prevention Network (YVPN) responds directly to violence in the community. In most cases YVPN has volunteer staff on site at the scene of crime to offer immediate support and / or counseling to victims and/or the victim’s family, friends and authorities if need be. Additionally YVPN offers these services:            
  • Youth intervention counseling, mentoring and services that lead to positive outcomes (stronger families, jobs, education, developing life plans). We also have speakers for schools and other organizations working on this issue. We are building a network of support for young people.  
  • Street outreach at "hot-spots" throughout King County where at-risk youth gather.
  • 24 hour/7 day week availability by calling (206) 937-1417. We have staff available who will assist youth with any issues they face.
