County Youth Programs

County Youth Programs (CYP), one of the four divisions in the Office of Family and Community Services, plans, develops, and provides service for children and youth. The Dropout Initiative (1998) has a multi-component program called Doors To Success (DTS) which impacts the youth population between the ages of 16 and 23 in areas where the rate of high school dropout is high.




Volunteers and contributions are welcome. For more information on how you can help please call 314-615-4429.
