Synopsis: Research establishes that some youth successfully adapt, despite adversity. The Prevention, Access, Self-Empowerment and Support (PASS) initiative supports youth to become successful young people. It builds upon individual, family and community factors that research demonstrates promote resilience. Using a culturally competent curriculum and staff, PASS aims to improve participant-family communication, social competencies, advocacy, and leadership skills. Part of Monroe County, NY, System of Care initiative, PASS averages 20 youth, the majority of whom report behavioral challenges. In 2006, participants included African-American (59%), White (29%) and Latino (12%) youth. Factors that promote participant success, individual and programmatic outcomes, will be presented.
