Youth FAST

Middle School / Teen FAST enhances protective factors in High School youth and their families. Based on scientific research, FAST provides youth and his/her chosen parent or mentor with structured activities that enhance communication and family functioning, decrease stress, elevate youth’s efficacy, increase parental involvement in school, and enhance youth and parent/mentor’s social support networks. These protective factors build resistance against youth failure in school, substance abuse, or other risks faced by youth and families.
