Youth Outreach for Victim Assistance

      
The Youth Outreach Victim Assistance (YOVA) project was a youth leadership program with the primary goal of educating teens on the dynamics of victimization and providing information on where they can turn for help and support. Thirty-two youth-adult teams around the nation accomplished this goal by creating unique outreach events, materials, and advertising to reach teen crime victims in their local communities.
