Youth Outreach Program

 

The Youth Outreach Program is designed to work as a preventative strategy for youth who are exhibiting at-risk behaviors. Addressed areas of concern are decision making skills, goal setting, communication, teamwork, peer pressure, ‘sexting’, respect, bullying, anger management, drug awareness, stealing and legal consequences.

The goal of the Outreach Program is to provide prevention and early intervention services to young males and females who are in need of a diversion. Teens who are engaging in risky behavior can receive education and support to make positive life choices and gain a stronger awareness of the consequences to their actions before it becomes a problem. Our programs give youth the tools they need to say no to peer pressure, stand up to bullying, gain higher self-worth and make better life choices.

The Essex County Diversion Program accepts community referrals from youth, parents, schools and community partners. Every program and service we offer is open and available to any youth ages 12-17 in the Windsor/Essex County area.

Additionally, Staff will act as an advocate and connect youth with other programs and services in the Windsor/Essex County area. The goal is to provide youth with the most well rounded and appropriate services to meet their individual and unique needs. Contact us at 519-253-3340 or at youthoutreach@essexcountydiversion.com for more information or fill out a referral form now to get started.
