The City of West Palm Beach Mayor’s Village Initiative (MVI) launched a new, powerful action plan on Tuesday, February 12, 2019. This comprehensive plan addresses five pillars: Workforce Development;  Prevention/Intervention; Education; Health; and Reentry. The plan also incorporates national and local strategic collaborations and partnerships.  MVI’s mission is to create a safe and secure environment for West Palm Beach youth, particularly African-American boys and young men. The specific focus of MVI is to acknowledge and combat challenges that young African-American boys and men face in the Historic Northwest, Coleman Park and Pleasant City areas of West Palm Beach. The “village” consists of government agencies, businesses, concerned citizens, the faith community, non-profits, philanthropists, local law enforcement, and schools.
