In 1999, seeking to reduce Philadelphia's homicide rate and put youthful offenders on the path to a productive adulthood, various Philadelphia agencies and organizations, including Public/Private Ventures, partnered to form the Youth Violence Reduction Partnership. Its goal is to steer youth, ages 14 to 24 and at the greatest risk of killing or being killed, toward productive lives through increased support and supervision. This poster describes Philadelphia's Youth Violence Reduction Partnership and provides evidence the initiative may be reducing homicides.
