Community Programming Initiative

The Community Programming Initiative serves as a bridge between youth, families, and the community through outreach, engagement and other supportive services by implementing the service delivery models with the following three objectives in mind: 1. To advance the rehabilitation of DYRS youth by connecting them to services, supports, and resources that help them reach their goals and developmental milestones; 2. To enhance public safety by engaging youth in positive, developmentally appropriate, and structured activities that complement and enhance DYRS’s methodologies for the care and supervision of young people; and 3. To create safer and stronger communities that support youth and families by investing directly in local organizational and human resources that are accessible and dedicated to strengthening young people and their families.
