Why Try is a part of Evidence-based Practices.
The Why Try Program is a strength-based approach to helping youth overcome their challenges and improve outcomes in the areas of truancy, behavior, and academics. Youth are taught social and emotional principles through a series of 10 pictures that teaches a discrete principle. These visuals are then reinforced by music and physical activities.
The program addresses the following areas:
- Academic Improvement
- Literacy Development
- Students with Disabilities
- Study Skills
- Substance Abuse
- Life Skills Training
