  • Help youth gain the courage to change and develop healthy, positive coping skills
  • Support youth through the unknown and sometimes frightening process of change
  • Teach youth to support each other and learn the value of true, healthy friendships
  • Maintain a positive peer culture based on love and support
  • Teach parents in crisis the skills they need to help themselves and their families
  • Help parents become positive, powerful, and insightful
  • Assist parents in improving their own personal relationships
  • Help parents find within themselves the power to change
  • Support and encourage parents through this process of personal growth and change, which is vital for the program to have lasting and valuable effect
  • Foster support amongst youth, parents, and the community
