Project SUCCESS (Schools Using Coordinated Community Efforts to Strengthen Schools)


A Mentoring Program for Resiliency Development

Project SUCCESS offers supportive services to secondary students most in danger of failure in school or other high risk behaviors. By involving students in program services on a regular basis, mentoring relationships develop that can motivate students to achieve personal goals. Project SUCCESS prevents and reduces substance abuse among high-risk, multi-problem high school adolescents aged 14-18 through education, skills training, and information dissemination including normative and preventive education, mentoring and skills training, problem identification and referral, community based processes, and environmental approaches. The program achieves its results by placing highly qualified and trained individuals to work within the school setting to compliment the SAP team.

Project SUCCESS is a fee-for-service program. Contact the CHC office to discuss options for how your school can participate in this program.
