Youth Access to Support and Services (YASS) is a project designed to reach the youth in our communities. The YASS project is a collaboration between CHH, Boston Area Rape Crisis Center (BARCC), and Pathways for Change in Worcester.
YASS offers free professional development training for youth organizations and youth workers. Our training includes an introduction to sexual violence in our youth population, ways to respond and what steps to take when a youth discloses. YASS also works with organizations on protocols and policies around sexual violence and prevention, creating a more friendly environment for survivors. If you are interested in a training, please contact Camila by email or at 978-452-YASS (9277)
Our Youth Program also offers individual counseling, this includes traveling to go see the teens at their organizations, being accessible to the youth for them to receive services. We also offer support groups, workshops, and school programming.
YASS works closely with our youth, proving a Youth Leadership Corps that works on ways to prevent sexual violence and educate their peers in their community.
