30-Year Program Reaches Out to Youth, Teaches Life Skills

The Southwest Louisiana AIDS Council (SLAC), in conjunction with Office of Public Health and the Department of Health and Hospitals Bureau of Family Services is proud to facilitate the Wyman Teen Outreach Prevention Program (TOP)® in Calcasieu parish for youth ages 12-17 years.

Wyman’s TOP® is a national program for teens whose effectiveness has been proven in 30 years of operation. The program is currently administered in over 400 organizations in the US, Virgin Islands and United Kingdom.

Wyman’s TOP® program delivers a comprehensive youth development strategy that promotes the positive growth and development of youth through a combination of curriculum-guided group discussions and volunteer community service learning activities designed to increase self-esteem and teach important life skills. Teens learn important resiliency skills,pro-social behaviors, positives responses to conflict, and they evaluate the direction of their life. The program is designed to equip teens with the necessary supports and opportunities to prepare for successful adulthood.

TOP® has three essential goals to:

Promote Healthy Behavior

Teach Life Skills

Give Sense of Purpose

TOP® is proven to lower risk of school suspension by 52%, lower risk of course failure by 62%, lower risk of pregnancy by 53%, and lower the risk of school dropout by 60%.

Registration is on-going and will end on August 30. Space is limited! The program is free to participants and includes gift card incentives for their participation. Enrollment is easy, and the benefit is incalculable. Teens participate by meeting with their TOP® Club once a week after school during the school year, and completing 20 hours of Community Service. To learn more or enroll your teen, contact Barbara “BJ” Miller, Christina Duhon, Krystal Esters, or Gilbert Brown at (337) 439-5861.

There are no costs to parents for teens to participate in the program. All fees are paid.
