Future For Youth


Increasing exposure to drug and alcohol abuse and violence requires Burlington County families and schools to work with community agencies and governmental bodies in the support of youth development.


  • Youth will be involved in the boards of community agencies and governmental bodies.
  • Youth will develop peer advocacy groups.
  • Families will be strengthened through improved communications.

Action Plan

  • Conduct leadership training workshops to increase youth involvement in decision-making processes.
  • Conduct self-advocacy training courses for youth to take responsibility for themselves individually and as a group.
  • Develop a "Strengthen Your Family Program" that allows youth and parents to understand each other by sharing information.
