Mission Statement

Discovering Options helps at-risk children avoid drug use and other self-destructive behaviors through mentoring and comprehensive after school programming that encourages family involvement.

Description

Discovering Options is a local non profit that serves 100 at-risk children per year. We serve children in two phases: the first is through PREP our award winning after school program. We see the children 4 days a week, 2.5 hours a day for 10 weeks. During that time we teach the children decision making, team work, listening and conflict resolution. Our work prior to mentoring helps prepare the children for the second phase of the program which is mentoring!

At PREP we are Promoting Responsibility through Education and Preparation!
