Visits to Five Outstanding Safe Passage Programs
This chapter looks for exemplary programs that concentrate on teenagers. It looks at evidence that the programs have assured Safe Passage by promoting educational outcomes, preventing new morbidities, and demonstrating high expectations for youth. Five programs were selected: Centro Sister Isolino Ferre, a youth and family centre with a police sub-station in Caimitio, Puerto Rico; Quantum Opportunities Program, an after-school enrichment program run by Opportunities Industrialization Centers in Philadelphia; El Puente, a high school in a community center in Williamsburg, New York; Caring Connection, a comprehensive, multi-component, multi-agency program run by the Marshalltown School District in Marshalltown, Iowa; and Turner Middle School, a university-assisted community school run in collaboration with the University Of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia. All of these programs proved to be flexible and reactive. They appeared to be able to adjust schedules, personnel, and policies to meet the needs of their clientele.
