School and Community Programming Coordinator

The Victims Impact Panel of Oklahoma, Inc., (VIP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to reducing the epidemic of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol.  Impaired driving crashes take innocent lives and physically injure an alarming number of people daily.  They are the number one killer of our young people.  But unlike other serious epidemics, impaired driving has a cure. The answer is found in those who are forever changed because of someone’s decision to drive under the influence.

 

Victims Impact Panel of Oklahoma, Inc., believes in aiming at the heart to reach people about the dangers of driving under the influence. This is accomplished by presenting a panel of three speakers who share their personal and very real tragedies, thereby giving a name and a face to the pain and devastation.  

 

The School and Community Programming Coordinator will provide planning, oversight, coordination, and assessment of Victim Impact Panels school and community programs with a primary focus on the development of a stable and fluid operational structure.
