How does it work
Services are voluntary and provided at no cost to youth or their families. Youth meet in schools and community-based settings in Rockland County, with parental consent.

Project utilizes an Evidence-Based Program (EBP) called Project AIM (Adult Identity Mentoring), which is designed to reduce at-risk behaviors among youth ages 11 to 14. The collaboration with schools and community-based organizations aims to offer youth alternative positive choices, and the motivation to make healthy choices towards defining themselves as successful adults.
