Youth Excellence Program (YEP)
YEP is a comprehensive evidence-based program that teaches LifeSkills to middle and high school students.
This program is designed to prevent and deter current use of controlled substances and under-age drinking by teaching, promoting and developing positive and healthy decision-making skills.
YEP is supported by the Department of Children and Families (DCF) and South Florida Behavioral Network. It is presently being implemented in six Miami-Dade County public schools, namely: North Miami Middle School, North Miami Senior High School, Brownsville Middle School, Allapatah Middle School, Edison Senior High School, Horace Mann Middle School, Miami Jackson Senior High School and Booker T. Washington Senior High School.
