Phoenix House's Project YES teen drug prevention program hosts Youth Fair for teens in HarlemPhoenix House’s Project Youth Empowerment Services (YES) hosted a Youth Resource Fair at Bread and Roses High School to showcase summer activities for teens. Many local community based organizations and education support providers were on hand with us to provide guidance and information on summer camps, summer courses, neighborhood programs, and jobs for students. The Project YES team welcomed The Door, The Children’s Aid Society, Teens P.A.C.T., Harlem Center For Education, The Unity Project, and The Read Alliance, among our exhibitors at this event. With summer approaching, many young people were able to find programs and jobs at this event and learn about local partnerships. Project YES’ educational and vocational specialists truly care about our city’s students and welcome the opportunity to encourage teens and their parents to join our substance abuse prevention programs, increate awareness, and promote healthy lifestyles.

Project YES is an after-school prevention/intervention program combined with tailored educational and career services, designed to serve at-risk adolescents, ages 13-20, in the early experimental stages of substance use and/or exhibiting other high-risk behaviors. Services are delivered over an eight week period with an in-depth assessment, parent informational session, individual counseling, and weekly peer group sessions. Educational and vocational support is provided for the duration of the program, and four months after. Upon completion, teens receive aftercare referrals for continuing support. Project YES offers young people the opportunity to participate in a variety of services designed to help them live alcohol and drug-free lives. This program has an open referral base for youth residing in the Harlem community.
