How You Can Help Struggling Youth - Growth Works

A parents', grandparents', teachers' and counselors' introduction to local program for at-risk youth


When a child is acting out, showing signs of at-risk behavior, experimenting with drugs and alcohol, where can a parent turn? For Wayne Country residents, they can turn to the Youth Assistance and Diversion Program - a service of Growth Works.

This unique program provides an opportunity for a child to improve decision-making, take responsibility for their actions, and gain tools to navigate life.

The Growth Works team works with youth ages 11-17.5 to support young people and their families. The goal is to be a positive adult figure and meet each kid where they're at. The team members feel this is an opportunity to plant seeds for future growth.

Whether you're a parent, teacher, counselor or concerned citizen, we invite you to join us the EVENING of February 13 to learn more about how we can help our young people be the best version of themselves.
