The number of girls in DC's juvenile justice system is rising, and national estimates suggest that at least 65% have a history of trauma. Working with girls ages 9-17 who are court-involved or at risk of involvement, YLOT uses a holistic approach. Its year-round youth development program offers one-on-one and group mentoring, homework assistance, life skills classes, and health and wellness workshops. Girls build positive relationships with caring adults and with their peers, while also learning to develop coping skills, make good decisions, and improve academically. A six-week workforce development program – including daily workshops, community service projects, and mini-internships – prepares participants for jobs and careers, and summer retreats use a trauma-informed curriculum to help them understand life’s challenges and process past experiences. Your investment helps place girls on the path to productive, healthy, and rewarding lives.
