South Central Community Services, Inc. proposes to increase its at-risk youth programming to youth, ages 9 to 18 years old, by increasing services to include life skills programming and activities, and parenting classes for teen parents. Outcomes are to keep at-risk students in school and prepare them to be responsible, employable members of society. Program enhancements are expected to yield a 50% increase in enrollment to at-risk youth programs, and a 30% increase in average daily attendance. NCA/NCF
