Aligned with our strategic priorities, our commitment to operational excellence and model fidelity help to differentiate YAP, enabling us to provide uniquely delivered community-based services that are more racially equitable, have better outcomes, and are more cost effective than out-of-home placement. Whether serving participants and family members in our Youth Justice, Child Welfare, Behavioral Health, Institutional Disabilities, Violence Prevention or other programs, our staff receive training in the YAP Wraparound Services model that has guided our work since 1975. At the core of our model is hiring culturally responsive neighborhood-based Advocates and mobile behavioral health staff who are trained to meet program participants where they are. YAP is committed to providing excellent service to our program participants, their parents and guardians, and other family members. Recognizing that more than two-thirds of our program participants are Black and Brown, we see our work as key to bringing better outcomes and improved racial equity to youth justice, child welfare, public safety and other systems where outcomes for individuals of color are disproportionately poorer. We regularly review our programs and provide development for YAP’s employees that includes training in areas such as racialized trauma and other career development opportunities to help them work with program participants to address complex challenges associated with structural inequities.
