Mission Statement

The Youth Assistance Program offers services and support to guide youth into making healthier life choices. This diversion program works to help prevent youth from entering into the juvenile justice system.

Description

The Wyandotte Youth Assistance Program is a non-profit community based program that works with Wyandotte youth ages 7-16 yrs. old and their families. This intervention/prevention program has been operating since 1988. Referrals come from families, schools, police, juvenile court, other agencies, and even the youth as self-referrals. Problems that the youth may be having are family conflicts, school problems, truancy, alcohol/drug use, change in residence or school, commission of misdemeanor or felony, grief/loss issues, or behavioral problems. Based on an initial intake to gather information, a plan is devised toward helping the youth and family according to needs. This plan may include weekly meetings with a volunteer mentor, individual or famiy therapy, community work service, group counseling, recreational acitivities and parenting support. All services are voluntary, confidential and at no cost to the family.
