Youth Connect

 Youth Connect is a school-based intervention program that seeks to reduce justice involvement and improve health and wellness outcomes of students from elementary to post-secondary education. This initiative is a collaboration that includes the City of New Haven Youth Department, Board of Education, city social services agencies, mental health professionals, community partners, and parents.  Using a data-driven intervention model, the goal is to improve school engagement and academic performance among program-involved youth. Youth Connect identifies youth and connects them to a network of services that are specifically targeted to their individual needs which is inclusive of but not limited to: Tutoring, Academic Support, Gang Intervention, Mental Health Assessments and Treatment, Employment Matching, and Placement.
