Partnering to Serve Annapolis Families and Youth
PROVIDING THE HELP YOU NEED
Since 1972, the Community Action Agency’s Youth Development Services has assisted children and youth at their office in the Stanton Center, which is located at 92 West Washington Street in Annapolis. Youth Development Services provides therapeutic, preventative, and educational services and programming to benefit Anne Arundel County youth and children.
Since its’ inception, Youth Development Services has offered behavioral health programming for children, youth, and their families. In 2019, Community Action and Arundel Lodge developed a partnership that allows the Agency to expand its mental health services for children and youth, ages 5-24, and their families. Services include: diagnostic assessment, family-centered treatment planning, individual and family therapy, and transition and discharge planning.
The Community Action Agency offers Summer Future Success, a summer training and internship program, through a partnership with Anne Arundel Workforce Development Corporation. The program offers comprehensive workforce preparation training, career exploration, and paid summer internships to assist youth as they make career and decisions and prepare to enter the workforce.
Youth Development Services launched a new program in 2021, Project Ignite, in partnership with Anne Arundel County Public Schools. The program offers mentor-based enrichment and tutoring for students in grades 1-12 county-wide, with services focusing on children and youth who live in public housing. The program re-engages youth in different ways to help them achieve success in school and in their communities.
