Violence has become a way of dealing with problems among our youth and it is urgent that we redirect their responses in a positive way. This is why UCAN holds school assemblies with a message to the youth to overthrow drugs, alcohol, violence, crime, and hatred through exciting speakers.
The purpose of both the parent and the youth support groups is to rebuild relationships within the family and provide parents and their children problem-solving techniques while stressing communications. This program not only assists them in dealing with their family issues, but also offers teaching skills for the dysfunctional family.
