Service Coordination and Navigation Program

Service Coordination and Navigation Program

The Service Coordination and Navigation (SCaN) program seeks to stabilize young people at the highest risk of violence, increase their self-efficacy (confidence in the ability to exert control over one’s own motivation, behavior, and social environment), and assist in their transition to adulthood.

Our Goals

  • Reduce youth involvement in violence
  • Contribute to a reduction in violence at the community level
  • Increase youth self-efficacy
  • Stabilize eligible youth in their current environment
  • Assist in youth transition into adulthood

How Does it Work?

Youth are paired with a full-time “Navigator” who provides coordinated care interventions utilizing a strong community-based network of services.  The program model aims to reduce youth involvement in violence and contribute to a reduction in violence at the community-level. The target population is youth ages 14-24 years old at the highest risk of violence involvement.

 

Who is eligible?

The target population is youth ages 14-24 yearsold at the highest risk of violence – meaning they are:

  • Either actively engaged in violence, gang, or clique;
  • Have a history of or active involvement in the criminal justice system;
  • Were previously victims of violence, or;
  • Are chronically absent from school more than 50% of the last quarter.
