Making Visions Possible
School Based Youth Services Program
DFCP's Office of School-Linked Services contracts with a number of private non-profit organizations and/or school districts to provide a variety of prevention and support services for youth in New Jersey’s public elementary, middle and high schools. As a result, young people, and at times their families, are able to access services such as mental health, employment, substance abuse counseling, preventive health care, violence prevention, learning support, mentorship, teen parent skill development along with recreation.
Making Visions Possible (MVP) School Based Youth Services Program
The School Based Youth Services Program (SBYSP) was started in 1987 to help young people navigate their adolescent years, finish their education, obtain skills leading to employment or continuing education, and graduate healthy and drug free.
Adolescents have numerous concerns and problems. Since a substantial number of teenagers have multiple problems that call for several different services, SBYSP provides an array of employment, health and social services. Services are available to all youth and recreation is provided. In addition to the following core services, each site develops services which respond to local needs, such as on-site child care, so that teen parents can stay in school.
