Community Supports for Young People

May 9, 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

The May 9, 2023 CSYP meeting will use our “case study” format which means we will focus on learning about and supporting a specific program that benefits young people in our region.

This meeting will feature Hannah Bertrand and will focus on Project Amp, a mentoring program The Brick House has been sponsoring in our area for about a year. Hannah describes it this way:

“Project Amp is a brief, youth-driven, strengths-based, and non-punitive mentorship program.  Over 6-8 sessions, youth explore interests, develop goals, and navigate through pressures and risks that might impact their well-being.  This evidence-based program will foster a relationship of empowerment to help them reach their goals and strive towards self-resiliency. … I think the pull of this program is that it could overlap with any other youth offerings. I can meet kids at the Brick House, out in the community, at other agencies, or in schools (pending the school’s approval). I really see the program as a great way for kids to learn some healthy coping skills, set goals, and get some help with substance use if that’s part of what they need.” Project Amp website: https://projectamp4youth.com/

The CSYP workgroup is co-sponsored by the Community Health Improvement Plan and the Communities that Care Coalition and regularly brings people together – including young people themselves! – for collective engagement around health equity and the overall wellbeing of young people of all ages (0-24) in our community. This group includes individuals who volunteer or have personal or professional connections to systems that aim to support and care for young people in our area.
