The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s Vital Intervention Directional Alternatives (VIDA) Academy is currently accepting applications for the fall class. The 16-week class will start on February 16, 2019 and will graduate June 8, 2019. The VIDA Academy is designed for “at-risk” youth between the ages of 11 and 17 ½ to learn how to make better life choices and take responsibility for their future. VIDA is designed to redirect “at-risk” youth with issues such as defiance, anger, failing grades, truancy, family discord and substance abuse. VIDA incorporates physical fitness training, impulse control, life skill training, emotional management techniques, parent-teen and conflict resolution. Participants are referred to VIDA through the Juvenile Courts, schools or by their parents. VIDA is an opportunity for participants to work with law enforcement and other community-based organizations to create positive influences in their lives that will encourage them to succeed.
