We focus on the 80% of waking hours that adolescents spend outside of school. Studies show that what happens during this out-of-school time is the most important factor in determining adolescent success—both in school and in life.
Our program model has four parts: after-school enrichment, parental engagement, mentorship, and clinical counseling. These services ensure youth success across all of their different environments – in school, at home, in the community, and in moments of crisis.
“Leadership, collaboration, support, giving, caring, nurturing, partnership, children, future, achievement, health, safety . . . these are just a few of the words to describe what Y.O.U. means to the families of District 65. Y.O.U. is making a difference in the lives of students.”
