We’re committed to increasing high school graduation rates.
Positive youth development is a framework that guides this work. This framework is not just another program; it is a community-wide approach. It helps young people reach their full potential by increasing protective factors and reducing risk factors.
BUW has adopted the following principles to support youth in Berkshire County by:
- Focusing on strengths and positive outcomes.
- Building career readiness skills and employment opportunities.
- Supporting youth voices and engagement.
