Project Details

We are looking for enthusiastic bilingual (Spanish & English) volunteers to assist with our Victim Impact Panels.

The purpose of the Victim Impact Panel (VIP) program is to help DWI/DUI offenders realize the lasting and long-term effects of substance impaired driving, to create an empathy and understanding of the tragedy, to leave an impression that will change thinking and behavior, and to prevent future offenses from occurring.

Panels give victims a healing opportunity to share their stories in a meaningful way. At a VIP, victims and survivors of substance impaired driving crashes (or others impacted by the crime, such as law enforcement and first responders) speak briefly about the crash in which they were injured and/or in which a loved one was killed or injured, and how it impacts their lives. They do not blame or judge, they simply tell their stories, describing how their lives and the lives of their families and friends were affected by the crash.

Facilitator will make sure offenders attend the class, collect money orders from walk up registration and pass out certificates when the panel is over.
