YCTC is a peer program designed to build partnerships for positive and healthy youth development, which engage youth as active leaders and resources in their communities.
YCTC programs foster resiliency and protective factors in young people through the development of action-oriented meetings. Purposeful activities such as leadership training meetings, and other activities that result in skill building and mastery are all a part of YCTC. Critical to the ongoing impact of the program, YCTC programs develop leadership skills in youth.
There is no lecturing, just teens using music, fun, activities, and a high-energy format to challenge their peers to change their attitudes and behaviors concerning alcohol, tobacco and other drug use, as well as other related problems.
YCTC members focus on taking care of their peers by providing high-energy, positive activities and fun educational awareness campaigns. The meetings are a very important component. Some opportunities include: officials, coaches, scorekeepers, promotions, special events and Community projects. This is a great way to get job experience or try something new. Hours count toward club, church and school community service hours. Call 798-7572 x 0 for more information on this program.
