Reconnecting Youth Inc. is dedicated to researching, developing, testing and disseminating prevention programs for youth at risk and to training those who use our programs to implement them with fidelity. Our award-winning programs have been recognized for over a decade as models for evidence-based prevention and are included on SAMHSA’s National Registry of Evidence-Based Programs and Practices (NREPP).
RY was developed in 1985, and it has been implemented in all 50 States as well as internationally (e.g., in Canada, Germany, Malaysia, Russia, and Spain) and has reached hundreds of thousands of youth. The intervention model continues to be implemented in an estimated 3,000 settings annually. Several States, including California, Maine, Indiana, North Carolina, North Dakota, New York, Texas, and others have adopted RY as an evidence-based program, recommending it to youth-serving agencies, school districts, and faith-based partners.
We are confident that together we can make significant gains in assisting youth to succeed in school and in life.
