Our Evidenced-Based Trauma-Informed Life Skills Training Program provides students with several courses geared towards empowering them to thrive at home, in their communities, at school, and in the workplace and to remain or become alcohol and drug free.  Our ultimate goal is to provide training to youth that will enable them to graduate from high school on time, and prepare them for college and/or careers.  We want youth served  to control their own narrative, become self-sufficient, take on leadership roles, and become independent and contributing stakeholders in their communities.
