Vermont's Department for Children and Families (DCF) seeks to help school age children and youth to improve their academic skills and confidence, complete their high school education, and develop a positive relationship to themselves and other community members, thereby reducing the likelihood that youth will engage in delinquent behaviors. To accomplish these goals, DCF will support eleven school and community projects for up to three years to provide a variety of services and interventions to develop protective factors and reduce risk factors in at-risk youth. DCF will track rates of school completion, measure of social-emotional health, and youth's success in making the transition from school to work. NCA/NCF
