The voice of our youth is a significant contributor to our program design. While developing their leadership skills our youth also give back to the organization with programs like PASS It On and Children Teaching Children.
In a recent survey, 85% of our youth report that they have a trusted adult, volunteer, or mentor from our program that they can depend on. In addition, when asked during our recent long term study, former participants shared that they stayed in the program because they had a consistent and safe relationship with an adult mentor.
