After-School/Summer and Prevention Programs

Directions for Youth & Families’ Prevention and Education programs offer after-school, summer and group programming that work to educate youth about the consequences of unhealthy lifestyle choices, teen sexual activity, substance use, and delinquency.  Through innovative activities, DFYF prevention staff instruct youth while allowing them to discuss issues important to them and come to informed decisions about positive decision-making, peer pressure and healthy behaviors.
