We begin by cultivating an interagency collaborative that serves as a network of pro-social supports along the continuum of care model. Partnering agencies provide evidence-based programs and services to students at risk of poor life outcomes.

Our continuum of care model is based on the premise that the complex needs of Clayton County’s most vulnerable youth can best be addressed through the coordinated care of multiple agencies and committed actors in the county.

We work with parents and guardians to alleviate the barriers that hinder their child’s participation.

Parental and guardian input is valuable and encouraged throughout the program.
