In Partnership With Communities, AzYP Cultivates Healthy Foundations for Youth and Promotes Strong Families
Healthy Youth. Healthy Families. Healthy Communities.
AzYP’s life enhancing programs take a three-pronged, comprehensive approach focusing in three areas: Community Mobilization, Foundations for Youth, and Championing Families.
Monique- Phoenix, Rising
Monique made some bad decisions and was taken into the Juvenile Justice system. After being released to her parents she was ordered to attend AzyP’s WAKE UP! course. While in the program, Monique realized the destructive path her life was headed and vowed to make healthier decisions.
Kimberly- New Choices
“Thank you for explaining about abstinence and renewed virginity. I have made some decisions that I regret and dealt with some of the consequences that you have talked about this week. I’m going to make some changes, and I am going to start by signing the abstinence pledge.”
In June 2009 Arizona Youth Partnership’s Healthy Marriages/Strong Families program received nation-wide notoriety and was awarded “Promising Practice” status by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Family Assistance; only sixteen of the two hundred twenty six grantees received such awards.
Susan- Effective Communication
Susan, an eighth grade peer mentor, found herself in a bad situation that led to a meeting with the school Principal. With her newly acquired skills, she was able to clearly, honestly, and directly communicate with adults. “It means a lot to me to finally understand how to communicate.”.
Arizona Youth Partnership is proud to invite you to our 7th Annual Taste of Arizona to be held on Saturday, April 21st, 2012 at Old Tucson Studios. Please join us in celebrating strengthening youth, families and communities. Our programs employ a root cause approach to fighting poverty and seek to build healthy, self-sufficient youth and families through evidence-based prevention programs and community involvement. We currently reach youth and families in 29 rural communities throughout the state of Arizona covering 9 counties.
