This partner program to Reconnecting Youth and CAST is a family-centered, trauma-informed intervention designed to engage the parents or guardians of the RY and CAST Program youth. Through four parent group sessions, these important adults learn skills to support their students in their RY or CAST Program goals.
The Family Engagement Program outlines the important combination of speaking up, listening, expressing feelings, building self-esteem, and offering needed support. This strength-based model can substantially boost the outcomes of your RY or CAST Program, by instilling support in the home environment for all of the hard work the teens are doing in group.

CAST for Today's Student Athletes
Brief coach-to-athlete programs that model respect and promote healthy relationships. Use with your middle or high school students athletes as a precursor to or accompanying program with CAST or RY.
Coaches are uniquely poised to positively influence how young athletes think and behave, both on and off the field. We use two nationally recognized programs—one for young athletes on female sports teams and one for young male athletes—to encourage athletic coaches to leverage their extremely influential roles in the lives of student athletes.
