The Youth Scholars, Skills and Service Program (YS3) was created to service DCFS students between the ages of 16-21 in the care of DCFS residing in such placements as traditional foster care, home of relative, independent living or group home. At YCLA we focus on the entire student through Yoga & Meditation, Mental Health, Drug Abuse and Alcohol Counseling. Cultural Activities such as College Tours, Healthy Eating & Healthy Living Garden, Museum Study Trips and our Underground Railroad Study Trips to Niagara Falls, Canada. We believe that all students can achieve greatness it is our job to Expose, Enlighten and Encourage them on their journey to success!
