Goulds Youth Development Program

Proud Partners With Miami Dade County Government

In 1983, we started the Goulds Youth Development Program to work with delinquent and pre-delinquent youth in the Goulds area. All of the youth admitted into this program are either referred to us by the police, the courts, juvenile authorities, schools, parents or others.  Through this program, we provide youth Individual Counseling, Group Counseling, Work Experience, Basic Education, Homework Assistance and Employable Skills Training.  Miami-Dade County provides funding for this program.

Help Us Preserve Our Future
