VIDA accepts nonviolent, at-risk youth between the ages of 11 and 17½ who are struggling with parent relationships, academics, antisocial peers/attitudes and making smart decisions. Typically, participants are referred to the program through a community agency. Participants are then interviewed by trained VIDA staff members to determine if they meet the program’s targeted risk level. Parents can also enroll their children in the program.
