Our real-world programs help youth and families learn practical skills that will help equip them to build healthy, positive futures.
PROGRAMS: PRO Youth and Families’ vision and actions respond to the widespread impacts of trauma. Our strategy works at many levels: reorienting and strengthening community organizations, engaging youth and their families in the communities they live in at a grass-roots level, and sharing and building the skills critical to reducing the social and emotional impact of trauma.We know that trauma can be healed by resilience – a strength that can be learned by developing healthy habits. Compassion for yourself, nurturing social communications and bonds, and cultivating optimism and hope are at the core of what PRO Youth and Families provides to the youth, families and communities it serves.
