Youth

PROMOTING STRONG, HEALTHY, DRUG-FREE YOUTH

UMADAOPFC delivers prevention services to Inner City youth, ages 8-14. In-school, after-school, and summer programs provide a fun and safe environment for youth to develop interpersonal strength and to grow academically and socially. Skill and asset development, along with strong relationship development with family and the community assist youth in making positive life choices about goals, friends, school, and drugs, leading to happier and healthier lives.

After-School Program

Our After School program has joined the Rosewind neighborhood (formerly Linden’s Windsor Terrace) to provide students with a safe and nurturing place to spend their afternoons. The program has become a community within a community where students receive age appropriate and culturally specific programming, including recreation, field trips, tutoring and educational enrichment activities that develop a positive self-image, promote positive social relationships, and supplementary alcohol, tobacco and other drug prevention services.

In-School Program

Students receive culturally specific education delivered during the school day to help them build a positive self-image, improve critical thinking skills, empower each child to build a drug-free social network, and finding the value in leading healthy, drug-free lives and investing in his/her education.

Summer Youth Program

Children and teens, ages 8-14, receive age-appropriate and culturally specific programming that is designed to diversify their interests, help them find the joy in learning, support them in creating and learning how to deliver a personal drug-free message, and finding positive ways to get involved in their community. Students are encouraged to participate in classes and activities throughout the 8-week program, including dance, chess, creative writing, cooking, computers, and life skills.
