Project Intervention allows youth to express themselves freely. It exposes the truth about life complications while re-establishing personal accountability into real life circumstances and situations. We accomplish this by using various hands-on demonstrations in our life classes to create an environment comfortable for youth to express themselves and reconnect emotionally while acknowledging their concerns and controversies with an honest outlook. These workshops are intended for youth who are 13 to 21 in age.
