SUN Youth Advocacy Program
High school students living in poverty face many obstacles to academic success.
Social support is critical to helping young adults who are at risk of dropping out, attending alternative schools, or those who have low rates of school attendance excel in school.
We help troubled teens aged 12 to 17 improve their self control, develop better conflict resolution skills, and communicate more effectively with adults and peers.
Through counseling and group activities, we help them feel more empowered to become involved in their community, encourage academic excellence, teach them to say “no” to negative peer pressures, and strengthen their sense of self-confidence.
