OUR YOUTH SERVICES

Youth Development and Mentoring Program (YDMP)

New Brunswick youth, ages 13-16, mitigate risk factors that foster gang involvement and prevent them from entering the juvenile justice system. They increase their knowledge and develop healthy mentoring relationships. Also, their parents increase their involvement in their children’s lives. Students self-reflect and learn to appreciate themselves and others.

Some services provided by YDMP include:

  • Youth group meetings: 26 youth intervention sessions that increase their knowledge of and reduce risky behavior
  • Mentoring: Mentors over 19 years of age meet with them for a minimum of six months for at least 4 hours each week and act as positive role models
  • Parent Group: Workshops that enhance their parenting and communication skills
  • Transportation and healthy meals
