Youth and Young Adult Strategies
Family & Children’s Service offers several programs to empower youth and young adults, regardless of their backgrounds, their environment, or their past experiences. The agency focuses on asset-building in middle school girls through our program The Right Moves; engages youth ages 10-16 in activities that build their social skills and excite them about learning through our TEEN SCENE drop-in center, and supports multidisciplinary approaches to combat gang violence through coordinated efforts for prevention and intervention by offering Project Advance for young men and women aged 14-24.
The Right Moves (TRM)
TRM is an asset building program for fifth-grade girls in the Lynn Public Schools, focusing on topics for girls who are preparing for middle school. The small groups are facilitated by licensed master’s level clinicians/social workers who have extensive experience working with youth in a variety of settings.
TEEN SCENE is a neighborhood drop-in center whose mission is to engage youth in activities that will build their social skills and excite them about learning. Continued academic support and enrichment activities help students see an improvement in grades and have an easier time dealing with the pressures of school, allowing them to increase their community connections and involvement.
The goal of Project Advance is to support multidisciplinary approaches to combat gang violence through coordinated efforts for prevention and intervention. Targeting youth ages 14-24 the program combines prevention and intervention strategies to reduce the number of youth who join gangs, and provide supports and services for youth who are linked to gangs to discourage ongoing involvement.
