MYVP II will support project interventions tailored to at-risk racial and ethnic minority and/or disadvantaged youth (ages 12-18 years) and requires coordinated, multi-discipline approaches that should address the following: public health, education, and public safety concerns; disparities in access to public health services; social determinants of health; and risk and protective factors.
