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

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.”.
