About Relentless Youth Workers

YOUCAN Youth Services Relentless Youth Outreach Workers stop at nothing — within reasonable measures — to reach out to youth and empower them in making positive, healthy and life changing decisions. Relentless Youth Outreach Workers aim to build long-term relationships with the youth as they move through the Ready Phase of our READY-WILLING-ABLE model with the end goal that they will eventually live independently and out of harm’s way.

THE RELENTLESS YOUTH OUTREACH WORKERS ADDRESS:

  • School factors, including low commitment to school, poor attitude or performance in school (if attending at all).
  • Employment factors, including low commitment to employment, poor attitude or performance in a job setting (if attending at all).
  • Family factors, including poor parent-child relationships, broken homes, separation from parents or low supervision.
  • Peer group factors, including gang affiliation or the influence of peers who engage in risky behavior.
  • Individual factors, including defining one’s identity through violence.
  • Societal factors, including alienation and poverty.

THE RELENTLESS YOUTH OUTREACH WORKERS AIM TO:

  • Reduce the incidents of disruption and crime by youth, moving them towards employment or education.
  • Increase attendance of youth, in school or day programs, as well as pre-employment or employment programs.
  • Reduce factors among youth, and their families that can cause harm.
  • Increase the factors among youth, and their families, which can move them toward success.

For more information about the program, please contact Amy Abrams.

Thank you to the following Partners for supporting our Relentless Youth Workers

Your Support. Their Success.

The youth we work with have hopes and dreams. They want to live lives that they can be proud of. They want to contribute to our community. They want to have the same opportunities that we have. YOUCAN Youth Services relies upon the support of the community to help youth realize those hopes and dreams. Your support helps with things like food, work clothes, and bus passes to name a few. These “little things” make a huge difference assisting youth as they move out of harms way and start moving towards economic independence. Will you help a YOUCAN Youth Services youth today?
