Program Goal

The New Jersey School Based Youth Services Program (SBYSP) was initiated by the New Jersey Department of Human Services (DHS) in 1987 to help young people navigate the adolescent years, finish their education, obtain skills leading to employment, and graduate healthy and drug-free. The SBYSP is a joint collaborative between the school and community.
