This project offers a wide array of support to lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans youth (14-23) around issues of violence and crime, such as dating violence, bullying, hate violence, assault, exploitation, theft, police harassment and youth in the sex trades. Centering youth empowerment and self-determination, the VIP project works with queer and trans youth to develop healthy relationship skills and stronger support networks. The VIP program supports youth to increase their confidence and abilities to address and prevent future incidents of violence and crime.
