Youth Partnership is a group for youth ages 13-21 with emotional and/or behavioral challenges. It provides an opportunity for youth to come together in a safe, nurturing non-judgmental environment. Within this social group we provide educational opportunities, guidance discussions , leadership endeavors, special outings, community service opportunities and many other activities that empower youth to inspire HOPE, embrace HELP, pursue HAPPINESS, and experience success. Each YP session consists of parent participation as well. Parents and caregivers remain on site in a separate parent support group and join the youth for a meal or take part in a joint activity such as music or art session, yoga or family focused presentation further inspiring the youth and family connection.
Our Empowered Youth are present on committees, CIACCs and even Boards of Trustees in provider agencies throughout the State of NJ and Nationally. The Family Support Organizations empower youth to fight stigma. Our Youth have presented at conferences throughout the State of NJ and Country and have national recognition. Our Youth help to shape our System of Care.
The Partnership strives to recognize and develop youth leadership qualities and skills that can be used to overcome the challenges faced by peers within the community. It encourages participation in outreach to community agencies in building partnerships which will increase membership and support.
