In 2009 YAP became accredited by the Council on Accreditation (COA) . The COA accreditation process involved a detailed review and analysis of our operations and service delivery practices. YAP performance was “measured” against national standards of best practice. These standards emphasize services that are accessible, appropriate, culturally responsive, evidence based, and outcomes-oriented. Achieving COA accreditation supports the premise that YAP services are provided by a skilled and supported workforce and that all individuals are treated with dignity and respect.
Our accreditation was renewed in 2013 and we are recognized in the areas of Youth Development, Family Preservation, Outpatient Mental Health, Developmental Disabilities, and Workforce Development.
Findings from external research studies contributed to YAP receiving recognition from a number of well-established government organizations and private foundations represented below:
YAP’s model and services have been cited in a number of publications from other organizations.
