Council on At-Risk Youth

Project Title:

Youth Violence Prevention

Grant Amount:

$80,000

Council on At-Risk Youth (CARY) focuses on youth in the Austin Independent School District with severe disciplinary issues that often result in suspension from school, removal to the disciplinary alternative education program, or removal to the juvenile justice alternative education program. CARY’s Youth Violence Prevention evidence-based program teaches these at-risk youth positive social skills, anger management, empathy, and character education. Students participating in the program show reduced behavioral incidents, improved attendance, and improved grades. The Impact Austin grant will enable the expansion of CARY’s Youth Violence Prevention program to Paredes Middle School where the organization can serve an additional 100 at-risk youth.
