Youth Advocate Programs are the county's greatest and best asset to redirect and change the lives of juveniles and their families.

 

District Judge, Marshall County

 

Mandated parenting skills training and non-violent strategies for conflict resolution for these at risk families yield preventative, long-term results to the community and justice system as a whole.

 

Kim J. Chaney, Cullman County District Judge

Youth Advocate Programs has been serving youth and families in Alabama since 2010. Beginning initially with one program in Mobile and expanding to four counties in North and South Alabama, high risk youth referred from Juvenile Justice, Child Welfare and Education agencies are constantly being provided with high fidelity wraparound services that assist in empowering families to utilize their strengths, accept their challenges and to give back to their communities.

Youth Advocate Programs was recommended by the Alabama State Department of Education to present YAP’s Truancy Program at the 2014 Department of Education MEGA Conference entitled: ‘Plan 2020--Every Child A Graduate ~ Every Graduate Prepared for College/Work/Adulthood in the 21st Century.’
