Violence Intervention Ambassadors is available to youth who want to gain proactive leadership skill. The emphasis is on training a generation of community leaders and animators who will move forward with confidence and also peer mentor other young persons towards pro-social activities and making healthy choices. This program is developed and lead by Springboard and delivered in partnership with MLSE LaunchPad to include a sport component that promotes a healthy active lifestyle.
