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.
