WAPI’s prevention services are based on the evidence-based “Leadership and Resiliency Program” (LRP). WAPI’s groups also focus on social justice education and cultural identity building. Groups include the “Leadership Council” and “FilStar” a Filipino youth group (a partnership with the Filipino Community Center).
- Problem Identification and Referral
- Brief Crisis Counseling
- Peer Group Support
- Social Justice Based Curriculum
- Drug & Alcohol Free Recreational Activities
- Designed for Youth of Color
HOW IT WORKS
Youth meet weekly throughout the year (including summer) and plan monthly recreational activities and community service. Adult staff serve as advisors but the groups are designed to be youth-led.
By being youth-led, youth are given the opportunity to learn leadership skills and communication skills.
