SRAE: Teen Outreach Program

The Teen Outreach Program (TOP) is an evidence-based, positive youth development program which promotes the healthy development of adolescents through weekly peer group meetings, curriculum, and community service learning. It is a nine-month program. The curriculum focuses on three core content areas that work together to build protective factors, reduce the impact of risk, and promote healthy development: skill building, developing a positive sense of self, and strengthening connections to others.

TOP is a licensed program that requires training of facilitators by certified trainers.
