Young people in our Youth Assistance Program (YAP) collected discarded items at Riverside Park and then went to the Recycle Here! center, where they learned about recycling and sorted what they collected into the appropriate bins. YAP is a prevention program that assists youth who are at risk because of behaviors which would be detrimental to their future if the behaviors continued. YAP teaches constructive social and emotional skills, strengthens family bonds, and connects youth to helpful resources and their community. It serves 70 youth a year.
