|O nas||Youth advocate program in the South Bronx working to keep youth out of the justice system and helping them become what they aspire to be.|
For almost 40 years, YAP has proven that high-risk youth involved in the juvenile justice system can safely and effectively be served in home and community-based settings at a fraction of the cost of out-of-home placements. YAP offers alternatives to detention and state incarceration, supports youth post-adjudication to help with compliance and other needs, and also provides reintegration support for youth transitioning out of these placements.
YAP continually evolves services to meet new needs that emerge for youth involved within the juvenile justice system, but most of our programming is designed for the purposes below.
Diversion: to divert youth from formal system involvement.
Pre-Adjudication: to prevent formal detention while ensuring community safety.
Post-Adjudication: to prevent incarceration in prisons, jails or other residential or secure facilities.
Re-Entry: to promote safety and support to youth transitioning back to the community from institutional placement.
