Youth Enrichment Services (YES) is an intervention based program designed for at risk students at selected middle and high schools in Orange County Public Schools. Students who are at-risk of being unsuccessful at school or who are involved with the Department of Juvenile Justice are eligible for the program.
The students will work with an Intervention Specialist who will closely monitor attendance and behavior, provide academic support and mentoring, refer students for tutoring and/or credit retrieval, provide individual counseling, provide employability skills, and build positive rapport with the student and family.
The intervention specialist will work with the Administrative Staff, School Resource Officers and the Department of Juvenile Justice. Youth Enrichment Services will keep parents informed of student progress, create a supportive environment for students, and keep accurate records.
