CJR’s Teen Outreach Program (TOP) is funded by the Department of Social Services (DSS), and is provided for East Hartford middle and high school students, ages 12 to 17, with a capacity of 50 students at any given time. This program consists of three interrelated components: supervised community service; group discussions; and activities related to key social and developmental tasks of adolescence. In each program component, youth work in small groups with a facilitator. Values, human growth and development, relationships, and dealing with family stress and issues relating to the social and emotional transition from adolescence to adulthood are discussed. In these sessions, participating boys and girls develop communication and decision-making skills. Service learning projects are developed with input from students and are then implemented within their home environments. These projects combine education and community service and empower young people to be successful. Program services are provided in the East Hartford Public Schools.
