RYASAP (Regional Youth Adult Social Action Partnership)
Serving the Greater Bridgeport region, RYASAP (Regional Youth Adult Social Action Partnership) works to ensure the safe and healthy development of youth, young adults and families by actively engaging organizations, public officials and community leaders around issues that matter most to the community.
By creating a "neutral table," community members bring energy and focus, allowing candid conversations to emerge and the catalyst for change to begin.
RYASAP's work tackles the tough issues teens, their families and their communities face: community violence prevention, gambling/substance use education, juvenile justice reform, mediation, personal safety, suicide prevention, teen relationships, urban education reform and youth leadership.
RYASAP's work has created statewide "best practice" models for other programs and communities' adoption
