The Phoenix Program is a great opportunity for people to be heard, let go of the negativity of the past, set new goals for the future and learn to believe in yourself.

WHO WE SERVE:

The Phoenix Program serves youth ages 14 to 17 years old who live in Multnomah, Clackamas, Washington, and Yamhill counties in Oregon as well as SW Washington. Many of the teens we work with come from homes that experience generational poverty, in-home violence, and racial discrimination. We serve all teens who want to make a change in their life, even those who appear to be doing well, or are college-bound.

PLAN OF OPERATIOn:

Students who are identified by their school administrators, counselors and teachers begin by attending a weekend intensive camp hosted at YMCA Camp Collins that teaches the 5 C's of Positive Youth Development: Competence, Confidence, Connection, Character and Caring.

Adult Volunteers from the school and community attend the weekend experience with students and act as mentors and role models for the experience. Synergo provides the in-depth programming curiculum and experienced facilitators to lead the weekend.

84% of students say that Phoenix has positively affected how they interact with people they don’t know or who are different from them, noting increased desire and willingness to connect with them, more openness and positive treatment of others, and more acceptance and non-judgement.
