The Y.O.U. program has enjoyed tremendous success since its establishment in 1992. The initiative grew out of the awareness that economically disadvantaged parenting teens and school drop-outs lacked the basic environmental support and services essential for proper growth, development, and functioning in society. The Y.O.U. program works closely with participating school districts in the identification and selection of youth at risk from ages 6-21 and provides services for these individuals.
