BHRS has partnered with four community-based efforts to support their youth leadership development efforts. The partnerships include:
Sierra Vista Child and Family Services- The Bridge Community Center
Hughson- Youth Connection
Patterson- Patterson Teen Center
West Modesto Leadership for the Future- Project Uplift
LRP is a school-and/or community-based program for youth ages 14-19 that enhances internal strengths and resiliency, prevents involvement with substance abuse and violence, and helps youth avoid school failure and involvement with juvenile justice. Specific activities include resiliency groups, adventure and outdoor activities, community service opportunities, conflict resolution, social skills training and peer mentoring. Individuals who are the focus of this program will be involved in its development. When fully implemented, the LRP programs will provide services to over 400 youth.
