The Milwaukee Police and Youth Program (MPYP) was started in 2018 thanks to funding by Ron and Micky Sadoff in order to create more leadership and engagement opportunities for the youth of the Greater Milwaukee area.
There are 3 main components of the program:
1) Youth and Police Initiative (YPI) -- a 6-day-long intensive youth leadership program
2) Youth Facilitator Training (YFT) -- a day-long training for youth facilitators including ongoing membership
3) Police & Youth Listening Circles (PYLC) -- listening circles between officers and up to 40 youth, co-facilitated by youth, focused on building trust and relationships
