MVP Vision Statement

The Making Visions Possible School Based Youth Service Program’s primary objective is to hold true to the overall vision of school base as articulated by the State of New Jersey.

In addition, we strive to support the needs of the whole student and their families by supporting the ever growing and changing needs of our diverse community.

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.
