Newberg-Dundee Youth Outreach

Outreach

Our outreach component is effectively targeting at-risk youth by weekly, regular lunch-time visits at all middle and high schools. We also  conduct one-on-one street outreach in environments frequented by youth throughout our community.

During outreach, teams comprised of staff, volunteers and youth themselves to provide significant information on a variety of issues including health, shelter, education, and employment.  Staff distribute our Teen Safety Plan” a small wallet size brochure designed to empower youth on the streets during potentially dangerous situations. 

Snack foods and basic hygiene materials may also be distributed to at-risk youth at this time.  In addition to our outreach efforts, teams offers referral services, assessments, goal development, case management and advocacy.
