Racine Violence Free Zone

VFZ Racine

The Racine Violence Free Zone (RVFZ) is a partnership between the Woodson Center (formerly Center for Neighborhood Enterprise) and the Racine Unified School District (RUSD) located in Racine, Wisconsin. The RVFZ is currently being implemented in three (3) local middle schools– McKinley, Mitchell and Starbuck.  Approximately four Youth Advisors work in each of the schools as mediators, hall monitors and role models.  The program has received high praise from teachers, principals and students and anticipates expanding to additional RUSD schools in the coming year.
