Street Smart programs are designed to help at-risk youth and young adults identify their personal strengths and take control of the thoughts and feelings that drive high-risk behavior. Both youth and young adults participate in weekly group sessions conducted by clinically-trained counselors and/or by trained staff who deliver prevention education and who facilitate discussions around critical issues to participants. SSYP programs focus on building resiliency and place a special emphasis on prevention regarding delinquent and criminal behavior, alcohol and substance abuse, and HIV awareness and prevention.
