Juvenile Programs - YTEC/PCC
Youth with behavioral health issues, ranging from substance abuse to mental illness, have access to an array of services at the Youth Treatment and Education Center (YTEC). Youth receive an integrated case plan provided by an innovative partnership between the Superior Court, Juvenile Probation, the Department of Public Health, and the San Francisco Unified School District. Together, the partners run the Principals' Center Collaborative (PCC), a high school for youth on probation that integrates behavioral health services within the school day. The program evolved out of the original Juvenile Drug Court developed nine years ago through a collaboration involving the Juvenile Probation Department, San Francisco Superior Court, District Attorney's and Public Defender's Offices, as well as youth and their families. To support the innovative Drug Court model with its many wrap-around services, the non-profit 501©3 organization YTEC was formed.
The mission of the Youth Treatment and Education Center is to promote the long-term health, education, and well-being of San Francisco's youth by breaking the cycle of substance abuse, incarceration, and poverty.
YTEC currently offers services through the following three programs:
- Principals' Center Collaborative (PCC) provides behavioral counseling and academic support to youth on probation.
- Diversion is a 7-week substance-use education and prevention program for youth ages 13-19 with minor substance abuse issues. The goal of this program is to educate youth about the effects of alcohol and other drugs, as well as why people abuse.
- Youth Leadership Program is for youth who have graduated from court-ordered treatment. It was developed and designed by YTEC graduates who expressed a need for continued support services. This 12-month program is peer-lead and offers therapeutic, academic, vocational, and emotional support for participants who are enrolled in high school, college, or trade program.
