In addition, the MYVPP also addresses shared risk and protective factors on multiple levels including individual, family, school, community, and peer group. The MYVPP works closely with the Massachusetts Coalition for Youth Violence Prevention (MCYVP). This coalition consists of over 30 different community-based organizations, academic centers, faith-based organizations, research organizations and state agencies representing multiple facets of youth violence prevention. The coalition's structure and objectives are designed to facilitate communication and collaboration among members through the sharing of knowledge, experience, and resources related to youth violence prevention. The MYVPP and MCYVP have partnered to develop a strategic plan for youth violence prevention that will be completed by early 2007.
