Our Prevention Services

More than a clever phrase, prevention is at the core, a foundation for much of our most important work here at Youth Outreach.  Prevention is about preparing youth, families, and adults to be healthy, productive and successful; it is about promoting the principles and practices that create environments that nurture and support all those within it.  

We promote good decision-making, personal responsibility and healthy lifestyles through our prevention services.  We offer various peer groups using research based materials, and innovative afterschool and evening activities which promote positive peer relationships, equipping them with the tools they need to reduce at-risk behaviors, build assets and resilience, and prevent problem behaviors across the life span.

Staff helps youth identify options; empowering them in leadership roles and as advocates, community educators, and community service workers through positive youth leadership development projects.
