What is Y-CAP
An intervention/prevention program that works with students between the ages of 10-14. They are referred to Y-CAP through the juvenile court or school systems. 

  • It is broken down into three vital components: tutoring, mentoring and counseling. 
  • Students meet Monday through Friday afternoons
  • Family sessions are held twice monthly--sometimes with the child present, sometimes without.
  • The program staff is very involved with the student (sometimes to the extent of picking up or dropping off the child at school). 
  • Students may stay involved with the program as long as necessary.

93% of Y-CAP students have improved their grades and 96% of have improved their attendance at school.
