What is Youth Intervention?
Youth who are struggling with delinquency, mental health, social, academic, relational or other issues are at risk for lifelong problematic behaviors. Youth Intervention helps young people become productive adults and contributing members of society versus consumers of public services.
Intervention strategies are as diverse as the youth themselves. But all Youth Intervention programs keep youth in their schools, communities and out of the costly juvenile justice system. At the core of every Youth Intervention program is the ability for a caring adult to build a meaningful relationship with a young person. We all win when youth know someone cares.
