Helping BC Scores Grant Project (funded by SAMHSA)
The following programs are renewed on a yearly basis provided there is funding available.
Youth Ambassador Program (YAP)
The Youth Ambassador Program is a Beaver County initiative designed to educate youth about mental illness and reduce the stigma associated with it.
YAP members work with BCRC staff and other social service agency providers to plan programs and events in their school districts and throughout the county to increase awareness about mental illness. Students learn to identify when they need to reach out for help and how to access mental health services for assistance.
Students in grades 8-12 in all Beaver County school districts are eligible to participate.
