Youth Programs Development Consultant
James Houston started in the Victim Offender Education Group (VOEG) as a participant in one of its first groups. He later became a peer facilitator which kept him connected to the program for several years. After his release from San Quentin State Prison in 2013, James started working as the Program Coordinator for the Office of Neighborhood Safety (ONS) in Richmond where he continues to work with young men who are active firearm offenders. As a Youth Program Development Consultant, James will work in collaboration with Sam Vaughn to bring IPP’s Victim Offender Education Group to the young men he serves.
