Map Location Young Adult Vocational Program


The Young Adult Vocational Program (YAVP) is a comprehensive vocational, pre-vocational, and educational skill building program in the Metro Suburban area for youth between the ages of 16 and 26 with psychiatric disabilities. The program serves up to 20 individuals each day and uses a holistic model to support young adults. The YAVP team understands the compounded effects of a mental illness and transitioning from adolescence to adulthood,.  The young adult members of YAVP take part in small group instruction that fosters and supports a well-rounded approach to educational and vocational skill building. In addition, each member works with his/her individual job developer to set and accomplish desired goals. The members at YAVP have a wide array of interests which adds to the richly diverse learning atmosphere of the program. There is a broad range of activities and pursuits such as painting, drawing and graphic design, radio and TV, teaching, mechanics, carpentry, and human services. Peer Mentoring Project- YAVP Peer Mentors are available to provide recovery based supports within the program and community. Our Peer mentors provide integrated supports by facilitating recovery groups, providing individual mentoring, sharing their stories of recovery, providing education and connecting young adults to their community and each other.
