YPI: become a YPI organization
Sustaining YPI certification and facilitating ongoing YPI groups helps communities build sustainable trust between youth and police. It provides a context for using YPI as a tool to reduce crime, poverty and the risks that threaten child wellbeing. Youth Link offers an affordable coaching and consultation model where the community agency and Police Department participate in an ongoing effort to run YPIs and follow-up activities. Youth Link consultation includes review of outcomes, maintaining a strong team of trainers and monitoring strategic progress on issues that make communities safe places for kids to grow and succeed in school and life.
