Youth Prevention & Education

Youth Prevention and Education Services

 

Our Prevention Program for transitional youth uses an evidenced based curriculum that combines life skills training and educational sessions on topics related to youth daily life concerns. Services combine individual counseling with group work, and all sessions are conducted by licensed professionals experienced in working with teens and young adults.

In collaboration with other local community partners, over the last few years, IKRON has been part of a collaboration to reduce violence exposure and prevent violence in inner-city areas. Our unique approach that combines elements of Rehabilitation Counseling, Milieu therapy, and employment, have proven to be successful with many of the youth participating in our programs.

68% of youth served at IKRON reported a reduction in violence in their life and environment as a result of program participation.
