VNA’s School Family Partnership Boosts Student Success
VNA Health Group’s School Based Youth Services Program (SBYSP) also known as “The SPOT,” is a collaboration with the Asbury Park School District to provide a range of health and youth support services to students at the Asbury Park High School. The program is made possible through a grant from the New Jersey Department of Children and Families-Office of School Linked Services.
Students enrolled in the program are offered mental health and advocacy services, healthy youth development, community service, employment assistance, substance abuse prevention, academic assistance, recreation, preventative medical care, and information and referral services at no cost.
The SPOT promotes a holistic support service to students while working on goals to assist in the development of healthy recreational choices, remaining on track for graduation, lowering the use of substances and teen pregnancy, and provide skills they can utilize beyond graduation. Eligible Asbury Park High School students must receive parental consent to receive these services.
